Winemaker's Notes:

Brilliant yellow with golden highlights.

The freshness is the first thing that strikes you. Broad and complex. Clean and crisp fruit ranging from tropical to yellow apple. Spiciness comes out in a delicate orange peel. Delicate floral notes.

Structured, intense, full-bodied with citrusy acidity and fruity and persistent finish. Dry.

My Notes:

About Esperto:

ESPERTO strives to help people understand what wine is all about, not just the joy of drinking a good wine, but also the art of it. The joy of freshness as it fills the mouth and the beauty of having a good time and enjoying life as it is given to us. We see ourselves as artists whose canvas is the land we live on, the paint as the grapes we harvest, the wine as our artwork and finally the glass on your table as the art gallery where we can exhibit our hard work to the public.

Pinot Grigio has been part of the landscape in the Tre Venezie for over 200 years. Like so many things in Europe, it was history and war that brought Pinot Grigio from France (where it’s known as Pinot Gris) to Italy. As Napoleon marched across Italy on his way to battle with his arch-rival Austro-Hungarian Empire, his armed forces brought with them new ideas, new forms of government, new judicial systems and… new grapes. Pinot Grigio found its own in the Tre Venezie. It soon flourished and took on unique qualities that it never had in France. It is in this landscape that Pinot Grigio has become the lively, fruity and zesty wine that we now enjoy on warm summer evening dinners on the deck or as a refreshing by-the-glass favorite at restaurants the world over.
