2020 Pinot Grigio ''15'' (Castelfeder, Azienda Agricola)

Azienda Agricola Castelfeder, Pinot Grigio "15", Alto Adige, Italy 2020

100% Pinot Grigio


South Tyrol, better known to the wine world as Alto-Adige, lies within the borders of Italy at the foot of the Alps, but most of its population speak German. This influence also explains why so many of the grapes grown here are also specialties of Alsace, like Pinot Gris/Ruländer.  While Italian Pinot Grigio often brings to mind inoffensive (i.e. bland) whites for many, the variety actually lends itself to richness and structure. Castelfeder's Pinot Grigio, made by a fellow by the name of Günter, walks a perfect line between approachability and substance. Ample acidity and bright mineral come firmly attached with crisp apple and pear flavors.

Serving Suggestion: A refreshing foil to wintery treats like poached trout w/ almond shavings & buttery polenta w/ alpine cheese. Potato dumplings w/ radicchio or endives.
