75% Pinot Grigio, 25% Verduzzo
Interesting color nuances with notable golden reflections. Attractive flower-fresh and ripe-fruit
nose. The Verduzzo grapes ensure complexity and the Pinot Grigio grapes give their usual
freshness on the palate. Marked hints of dried fruit and an aftertaste with hints of pineapple.
Pinot Grigio delle Venezie is the most up-to-date Italian white wine.
The richness of the perfumes and aromas of this grape cultivated at
Castions di Strada, in the Friuli region, complements the structure of
the native Verduzzo grape, deliberately picked slightly over-ripe and
matured on plateaux. Masianco is a Supervenetian of great
personality which goes well with the typical dishes of today's
cuisine: hors d'oeuvres, fish and grilled white meats.
The Verduzzo does something to the Pinot Grigio that really makes it food friendly. I was surprised just how good it was. A great value for the price.
