(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.
This dry white wine is pale straw-yellow in color. The clean, intense aroma and dry flavour with pleasant golden apple aftertaste make Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio a wine of great character and versatility.
Yum. Have always enjoyed this bottle the rare times I drink white. First had this one in Italy.
Nearly limpid. Crisp, refreshing, but bland. Very minimal nose. Sort of unpleasant in the palate.
My favorite Pinot Grigio. Lovely in every way
