Pinot Grigio Classico

  • Cantina Terlano
  • Trentino Alto-Adige, Italy

Method & Production

Manual harvest and selection of the grapes; gentle whole cluster pressing and clarification of the must by natural sedimentation; slow fermentation at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks, aging on the lees in steel tanks for 5-7 months.

Tasting notes

Intensive straw yellow colour. Terlano Pinot Grigio pairs stimulating fruit - reminiscent of grapefruit, lychee and white melon - with the floral aromatic character of a freshly mown meadow. With its finely balanced components – from aromas of black tea to exotic fruity nuances of melon and ripe grapefruit – this is a superbly full and at the same time mellow wine.

Food matching

Ideal with South Tyrolean hors d’oeuvres such as smoked bacon, cured meats like Bündnerfleisch or venison salami, and their typical Italian counterparts like Parma ham, dried tomatoes and olive paté; herb risotto, nettle gnocchi or beetroot dumplings; lightly truffled dishes; tender veal and fine grilled fish.
