(From 2014 Vintage) Santa Margherita was the first company to vinify pink Pinot Grigio grapes as a white wine. In this process, the must does not remain in contact with the skins, from which it would otherwise take on the rusty color. Following a soft pressing, the must ferments for 10-15 days at 18° C (64°). Once the fermentation is over, the wine is stored at a controlled temperature of 15 - 16° C (59 - 61° F) in stainless steel tanks until it is time to bottle.
Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio is a wine of great character and versatility. It is the most popular imported wine in the United States. Color: A pale straw yellow Aroma: Clean and intense Taste: It is medium bodied with a fresh crisp character and firm structure, as well as a pleasant golden apple aftertaste.
