Pinot Grigio Cru Selection 2018 detajl vina

Wine description

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.

Cru Selection

Cru Selection wines have a very rich colour, an extraordinary beautiful body, which reflects the characteristic mineral note. These non-filtered wines are also extremely persistent.
