In stock

A fresh and dry Pinot Grigio from Italy's white wine heartland, the Veneto. Franchetto's south facing vineyards enjoy excellent sunlight but also the freshness of quite a high altitude (500 metres). On classic Venetian volcanic soils the 25 year old vines hang their fruit nice and long to produce developed, ripe fruit flavours while preserving lovely acidity, light body and refreshing minerality. A classic and very versatile white style, the Franchetto Pinot Grigio is delicious with or without food.

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on 2016 vintage

"This wine has a straw yellow color and shows on the nose with a great sophistication and harmoniousness, you can smell aromas of white fruits like pear and golden apple and a delicate spicy notes. It is ethereal, fragrant and slightly floral. The palate is fresh and persistent, with a perfectly integrated mineral vein; the aromatic and complex aftertaste is very persistant. Excellent as an aperitif, ideal with seafood salads, fish-based first courses and shellfish or soups particularly rich and tasty."
