A fresh and bright Pinot Grigio from Venezie, produced by Cantine Riondo. On the riper end of the spectrum, this wine is all about fresh pear, hints of white blossom, spiced apple notes, and a crisp, dry finish. A lovely drinking Summer white, that will match with a range of dishes, but particularly with fresh seafood.
100% Pinot Grigio grapes from the Delle Venezie D.O.C. Gentle pressing of the grapes is followed by a fermentation at 18°C and fining on the lees at 8° C for three months.
Riondo Pinot Grigio is a full-bodied, fruity, varietal wine with notable citrus scents of grapefruit and pleasant herbal notes of sage. Delightfully fresh and intense, it pairs perfectly with vegetable soups and grilled white meats.
Established in 2008, Riondo is one of the largest producers in the Veneto region of Italy. The name derives from “Monte Riondo”, a round hill at short distance from the winery and is now the principal brand dedicated to sparkling wines as well as single varietal wines, such as Pinot Grigio and Corvina. Their vineyards cover all the main production zones of Veneto region, from Valpolicella in the north of Verona, to Soave in the east of the city up to the province of Vicenza and Padua where Prosecco grows. This is one of the most productive regions in Italy and a genuine jewel in the winemaking world.
