The Pinot Grigio grape variety reached Trentino in the second half of the 19th century and originally it was called Ruländer. Nowadays the grapes used to make Ritratti Pinot Grigio are grown in the hills of Lavis and Pressano.
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.
