Pinot Grigio was originally called Ruländer, and came to Trentino in the second half of the 19th century. The grapes used to produce this wine come from the vineyards of the Lavis and Pressano hills. With an intense golden-yellow colour, Ritratti Pinot Grigio has an intense aroma with hints of pear and apricot and base notes of flowers and honey. The tannins are soft and enveloping on the palate.
