    Straw yellow with light coppery overtones. Intense. Floral aromas of orange flower, wild rose and hawthorn. Fruit aromas of apricot, white peach, apple and citrus fruits. we hope you perceive this message in each freshness. Fresh, fruity and citrusy aftertaste.

    2010 Pinot Grigio
    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.

    A large and diverse wine region in northeastern Italy, the Veneto is home to a vast array of different styles of wine. With no defining regional characteristics, it can be a bit confusing to the general consumer to parse through its many subzones, but the patient wine lover will find many treasures to be discovered here, typically at wallet-friendly prices. Red and white wines are produced here, with more emphasis on the latter, as well as the ultra-popular sparkling wine Prosecco. The region is sheltered from harsh northern European winters by the Alps, which form its northern border, but the climate is still relatively cool, making the Veneto ideal for white wine production.

    Much of Italy’s Pinot Grigio hails from the Veneto, where it can range from neutral and inoffensive to crisp and refreshing. Soave, made primarily from the Garganega grape, has a reputation for producing relatively ordinary, bulk wines, but can be very elegant when yields are carefully monitored, with aromas of lemon, almond, and white flowers. Valpolicella is the region’s best-known red wine, with juicy, tart red cherry flavors derived from the Corvina grape. Recioto and Amarone wines made from dried grapes are a regional specialty and can be very intense, heady, and cerebral.

    Pinot Gris/Grigio

    View all wine

    One grape variety with two very distinct personas, Pinot Gris in France is rich, round, and aromatic, while Pinot Grigio in Italy is simple, crisp, and refreshing. In Italy, Pinot Grigio is grown in the mountainous regions of Trentino, Friuli, and Alto Adige in the northeast. In France it reaches its apex in Alsace. Pinots both “Gris” and “Grigio” are produced successfully in Oregon's Willamette Valley as well as parts of California, and are widely planted throughout central and eastern Europe.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity, so full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear, and almond skin. Alsatian styles are aromatic, richly textured and often relatively high in alcohol. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is much more subdued, light, simple, and easy to drink.

    Perfect Pairings

    Alsace is renowned for its potent food–pork, foie gras, and charcuterie. With its viscous nature, Pinot Gris fits in harmoniously with these heavy hitters. Pinot Grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works better with simple salads, a wide range of seafood, and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Outside of France and Italy, the decision by the producer whether to label as “Gris” or “Grigio” serves as a strong indicator as to the style of wine in the bottle—the former will typically be a richer, more serious rendition while the latter will be bright, fresh, and fun.
