Story of the Wine:
Pinot Grigio is without doubt one of Italy’s favourite wines. This is from the new IGT of Provincia di Mantova which runs south of the Lake Garda across Veneto and into Lombardia. It is a wide ranging appellation designed to include the better wines not specifically covered by other denominations. This wine is from the La Prendina estate which is under the same ownership as the Cavalchina estate in Custoza and invariably produces distinctive wines of considerable character.
Grape(s): 100% Pinot Grigio
Area: From a single vineyard, Vigneto Casina, in the La Prendina estate in Mozambano, near Lake Garda.
Pinot Grigio is undoubtedly Italy’s most fashionable grape variety and rightly so. Its favourite home is in northeast Italy and this example comes from vineyards nestling in the undulating landscape due south of Lake Garda. It is great with softly flavoured foods or on its own. A lovely, soft almost sappy fruit flavour on the nose is backed up by a mouth-filling texture on the palate.
