Collezione Millesimi

After a few years of careful consideration and planning, we finally have the pleasure of introducing you to our new initiative, Collezione Millesimi (Vintage-dated Collection).

WHAT IS THE TRUE COLOUR OF PINOT GRIGIO?

Straw yellow, coppery, paper white, rosé, onion skin: these are the hues that we can expect when we encounter a Pinot Grigio, so that the question often legitimately arises of what exactly is the correct colour expression of this wine.
