In 1961, Santa Margherita’s enologist had the inspired idea of applying traditional white wine vinification techniques to the pink-hued Pinot Grigio grapes of Trentino Alto Adige, immediately separating the skins from the must in the pressing phase and thus preventing them from yielding the (until then) classic rusty color. Thus was created this innovative white wine which, with its characteristics of a fresh, fragrant bouquet and versatile taste, represented a real revolution for the wine sector. Ever since, it has continued to gain popularity and accolades both in Italy and abroad, maintaining its strong position of leadership among D.O.C. Pinot Grigios.Tasting notesThis dry white wine has a straw yellow color. Its clean, intense aroma and bone-dry taste (with an appealing flavor of Golden Delicious apples) make Santa Margherita’s Pinot Grigio a wine of great personality and versatility.Serving suggestionsExcellent as an aperitif, and ideal with seafood salads or pasta and rice dishes based on fish and shellfish. Also perfect with white meats, boiled or grilled fish and soufflés. COLOR Straw yellow AROMA Clean, crisp fragrance with intense yet elegant hints of quince TASTE Fresh, harmonious fruit set off by slight sweetness with a long finish full of delicate, tangy flavor Length/Type of Fermentation: 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°). Length/Type of Aging: 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.
