Conte de'Attimis - Pinot Grigio, Friuli Italy
Sensory characteristics: straw yellow color. The characteristic, elegant and intense bouquet is rich in oak, walnut husk, yellow peaches and golden apples. Harmonious and sophisticated with marked yeasty hints acquired by maturation “sur lies”. The wine is lively on the palate where it becomes full and velvety with very persistent ripe fruit flavors, supported by a pleasant crispness.
Food and wine pairings: An excellent aperitif and hors d’oeuvres wine, it is ideal served with raw and cooked seafood. Superb accompaniment to fish, crustaceans, and clear soups. Sublime served with San Daniele ham.
Longevity: reaches maximum expression of the vine in the first two years and can easily exceed four years in the bottle.
Service: best served chilled (12 °C).
