Conti Brandolini d'Adda Pinot Grigio 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Starting in the mid-1980s, Count Brandino Brandolini began to pursue his ambitious goal of producing world-class Merlot at his family’s picture-perfect 500-acre estate in the Friuli district of northeast Italy. After several years of study at the University of Bordeaux, and much time spent at the family’s Bordeaux estate, the highly regarded Château Greysac, Brandolini became convinced that Friuli possessed the ideal terroir for production of superb quality wine. Significant investments were made in the construction of a state-of-the-art winery and cellars which provided the opportunity for the production of these exceptional wines. Conte Brandolini owns the 325-acre Cordignano estate in the Province of Treviso, where Pinot Grigio, originally cultivated throughout northeastern Italy, is grown. The soil in Friuli creates a distinctive Pinot Grigio style which is richer and more complex. The historical estate has been owned by the Brandolini family since 1780 and their line of estate-bottled wines represents the history and versatility of winemaking in Friuli. Excellent with all fish dishes. Terrific accompaniment to herb risottos, first course dishes and cheeses

Suggested Recipe Pairing presented by
Layered Rice Pudding

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.
