Danzante Pinot Grigio boasts a luminous straw yellow with generous gold highlights. The bouquet is rich with aromas of tropical fruit such as papaya and pineapple, followed by delicate floral notes. The aromatic fruitiness continues onto a generous, full-bodied palate that is wonderfully fresh and lively. A dynamic finish ends on a subtle note of crisp fruit.
Delightful as an aperitif. Pairs nicely with grilled vegetables, seafood first courses, and light, salted fish.
Pinot Grigio is considered a natural mutation of the noble Pinot Noir grape, with berries often tinged cinnamon brown or even slightly grayish purple. It originated in Burgundy where it is called Pinot Gris (gray) and has been planted in Italy since the last century. Now Pinot Grigio is planted widely throughout northeastern Italy, especially Friuli, Trentino and Alto Adige, where it produces superior wines in the cool climate. We have selected grapes for our Danzante Pinot Grigio from outstanding vineyards located along the alpine foothills of both Friuli and Trentino. We source our Pinot Grigio fruit directly from the small growers, many of who have tilled their small plots for generations.
