One of our favorite Pinot Grigios for several vintages the St Michael-Eppan hails from Alto Adige the appellation famed for the Santa Margherita and renowned for fuller-flavored smooth Pinots. This wine is richer than many with bright citrus and tropical fruit notes. Excellent for cocktails or aperitifs but definitely try this one with roasted chicken dishes.
