Pinot Grigio Classic L

Wine description

Golden yellow with copper tinges. The colour indicates the method of production, which in the right way highlights the intensity and complexity of the aroma (nice flower aromas developing in fruity and spicy notes), full body (the soft, mature and fruity initial taste is substituted by the note of apricots and melons), alcoholic richness with balanced acids, and variety characteristics (at the end, slightly bitter).

With food

Due to its complex body we recommend pairing it with a wide range of dishes – from cold starters to spring-summer pasta. It is excellent with sea food dishes, and not too spicy Asian, Thai and modern Japanese cuisine.

Aging

The maturation of a classical Pinot Grigio may develop fantastically up to ten years.

Brda Classic

Years of experience have shown that white wines produced in this way, with their expressive structure, which is not lost after maturing in the bottle for some years, should gain in expressive elegance laced with a marvellously pleasant minerality.
