    Winemaker Notes

    The 2017 Luna Nuda Pinot Grigio is even crisper and fresher than past vintages due to cooler temperatures throughout the year. This vintage expresses stone fruit flavors with hints of thyme almond notes on the palate. Luna Nuda Pinot Grigio is a dry white wine with brilliant minerality and subtle notes of alpine air from Italy’s northernmost region. This wine is perfectly paired with mussels and French fries.

    Fruit for Luna Nuda Pinot Grigio is 100% estate grown on the Giovanett family’s vineyards, where the grapes are hand-picked, and hand sorted for each vintage. The vineyards surround the towns of Cortina, Marge and Salerno, one of Alto Adige’s oldest white wine production areas. This region is most notable for producing crisp, fresh Pinot Grigio style wines. Alto Adige is the country’s premier site for this varietal.

    Luna Nuda, Italy
    Image of winery

    Luna Nuda comes from one of the best places in the world for growing Pinot Grigio grapes – Italy's Alto Adige Valley. This 100% Pinot Grigio is sourced from the family-owned Castelfeder Estate. It is handcrafted, and bio dynamically farmed. Luna Nuda is the Italian phrase, meaning "Naked Moon" often used by vintners to describe a clear night sky with a bright full moon shining and shimmering over the beautiful Italian countryside.

    A mountainous northern Italian region heavily influenced by German culture, Trentino-Alto Adige is actually made up of two separate but similar regions: Alto Adige and Trentino.

    Trentino, the southern half, is primarily Italian-speaking and largely responsible for the production of non-native, international grapes. There is a significant quantity of Chardonnay, Pinot Grigio and Merlot produced. But Trentino's native and most unique red variety, Teroldego, while still rare, is gaining popularity. It produces a deeply colored red wine rich in wild blackberry, herb, coffee and cocoa.

    The rugged terrain of German-speaking Alto Adige (also referred to as Südtirol) focuses on small-scale viticulture, with great value placed on local varieties—though international varieties have been widely planted since the 1800s. Sheltered by the Alps from harsh northerly winds, many of the best vineyards are at extreme altitude but on steep slopes to increase sunlight exposure.

    Dominant red varieties include the bold, herbaceous Lagrein and delicate, strawberry-kissed, Schiava, in addition to some Pinot Nero.

    The primary white grapes are Pinot grigio, Gewürztraminer, Chardonnay and Pinot blanc, as well as smaller plantings of Sauvignon blanc, Müller Thurgau. These tend to be bright and refreshing with crisp acidity and just the right amount of texture. Some of the highest quality Pinot grigio in Italy is made here.

    Pinot Gris / Grigio

    Showing a unique rosy, purplish hue upon full ripeness, this “white” variety is actually born out of a mutation of Pinot noir. The grape boasts two versions of its name, as well as two generally distinct styles. In Italy, Pinot grigio achieves most success in the mountainous regions of Trentino and Alto Adige as well as in the neighboring Friuli—all in Italy’s northeast. France's Alsace and Oregon's Willamette Valley produce some of the world's most well-regarded Pinot gris wine. California produces both styles with success.

    In the Glass

    Pinot Gris is naturally low in acidity but full ripeness is necessary to achieve and showcase its signature flavors and aromas of stone fruit, citrus, honeysuckle, pear and almond. Alsatian styles are aromatic (think rose and honey), richly textured and sometimes relatively higher in alcohol compared to its Italian counterparts. As Pinot Grigio in Italy, the style is often much lighter, charming and fruit driven.

    Perfect Pairings

    The viscosity of a typical Alsatian Pinot gris allows it to fit in harmoniously with the region's rich foods like pork, charcuterie and foie gras. Pinot grigio, on the other hand, with its lean, crisp, citrusy freshness, works well as an aperitif wine or with seafood and subtle chicken dishes.

    Sommelier Secret

    Given the color of its berries and aromatic and characterful potential if cared for as it is allowed to fully ripen, the Pinot grigio variety is actually one that is commonly used to make "orange wines." An orange wine is a white wine made in the red wine method, i.e. with fermentation on its skins. This process leads to a wine with more ephemeral aromas, complexity on the palate and a pleasant, light orange hue.
