Winemaker's Notes:

San Angelo Pinot Grigio is an elegant wine of pale-straw color, with an intense, fruity aroma, followed by a clean, rich, refreshing taste. These characteristics distinguish the unique and aristocratic San Angelo Pinot Grigio from its northern counterparts.

San Angelo Pinot Grigio is a delightful complement to light fare, seafood and simple veal and poultry dishes. Above all, it is a superb aperitif.

"Fresh lemon-lime aromas along with grapefruit and a hint of vanilla. Crisp acids join green apple and grapefruit flavors. The finish is soft and sweet with a light minerallike dryness."

About Castello Banfi:

In 1978 John and Harry Mariani, owners of the U.S. wine importer Banfi Vintners, established the award winning vineyard estate and winery Castello Banfi in the Brunello region of Tuscany. A constellation of single vineyards located on ideal sites cover about one third of the 7,100 acre (2,830 hectares) estate. The remaining land consists of bucolic meadows, olive and plum groves, and woodland. Central to the property is a medieval castle that functions as a hospitality center, hosting visitors at a full service restaurant, enoteca and museum dedicated to the history of glass and its relation to wine.
