Nals Margreid Pinot Grigio 2015
Pinot Gris/Grigio from Trentino-Alto Adige, Italy
Nals Margreid Pinot Gris owes its distinguishing and full-bodied make-up to its origins: 80-year old vines root in nourishing clay soils, which go towards the making of wines with excellent acidity, length, strength and structure. A stimulating choice as an aperitif or with delicate, light dishes and mushrooms.
Wine Enthusiast - "Delicate aromas that recall spring wild flower, orchard fruit, herb and crushed rock lead the nose on this structured white. Aged partly in large casks, the round, full-bodied palate offers ripe pear, nectarine and a flinty mineral note while fresh acidity provides balance."

About Trentino-Alto Adige(tren-TEE-noe ahl-toe ah-DEE-jay)
Notable FactsReds are likely to be Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Cabernet Franc, along with a few local varieties, most notably Schiaval. The white grapes are Pinot Bianco, Pinot Grigio, Traminer and Chardonnay. Chardonnay is the most-planted and most revered, while Traminer hails from Austria and has an amazingly light body, but is also intensely floral and delicious. Pinot Bianco and Pinot Grigio are the international players that make lively whites of good value. The sweet spot of Trentino Alto-Adige is Vino Santo- a wine not to be confused with Tuscany's Vin Santo. Vino Santo (which means holy wine) is a sweet wine of the area made from dried grapes. Not found as much as Vin Santo, but still a treat.
A little ditty about Italy...This country has about as many wines as its had governments. With 20 different regions, hundreds of DOCs and even more indigenous varieties, the amount of wine made in Italy is mind-boggling. Most of the juice, however, remains in the country for thirsty Italians. Wine is food in Italy and its rare that a meal is consumed without a glass of vino. That said, it's not common to find many folks drinking wine without food either. In turn, it's a match, and a mighty good one at that. In fact, it's safe to say that Italian wine is a foodie wine – one that goes on the table for a myraid of meals.
For regions, the most popular are Tuscany (home of Chianti), Piedmont and the Tre-Venezie, which includes Veneto, Trentino Alto-Adige and Friuli. Other communes of note are in Southern Italy, and a few good wines are made elsewhere in the country. The islands of Sardinia and Sicily are members of the Italian winemaking community as well.
