Winemaker's Notes:

Lemon-green in color with lovely aromas of citrus, white peach and green apples. This versatile Pinot Grigio is refreshing and soft with a smooth, dry finish.

A great choice for any occasion, but is ideal with hors d'oeuvres, vegetable soups, fresh garden salads and grilled sole or tilapia.

About Zenato:

Zenato is a company that possesses a strong link to the richness of its local history and culture, and continues to develop this connection today. The estate is based in a territory that surrounds Lake Garda, an area with an extraordinary microclimate that allows for an optimal growing season. The Zenato family is passionate in their dedication, vigorous research and innovation.

The company started with Sergio Zenato and his wife Carla as they began to produce quality wines from an indigenous varietal, Trebbiano di Lugana, and it has been passed down through the generations to their children. Currently, their daughter Nadia handles the marketing and promotional activity for the company, and their son Alberto oversees all aspects of production, from the growing of the vines to the time when the bottling process is complete.

Over time Zenato has explored another very important area of Italian wine production, Valpolicella, where they have dedicated endless efforts to the improvement and success of Amarone production, a wine of noble attributes and prestige. Zenato has entered into international markets and received the highest accolades from the wine industry's leading experts. Today, Zenato continues to look forward and make investments to develop projects based both in the area of Valpolicella and the area of Lugana.
