Pinot Grigio San Antini 2019/2020
£8.95 per bottle
Volcanic soils and a maritime influence combine to impart a distinct elegance and mineral character upon the island`s wines. Nero d`Avola and Shiraz make reliable, fleshy red wines, whilst Grillo, Inzolia and Chardonnay yield surprisingly well balanced and flavourful white wines. However, it is the uniquely rich and mineral influenced dessert wines that are perhaps Sicily`s greatest contribution to the wine world, from Marsala to Moscato di Pantelleria and Malvasia.
The company was born as a retailer in 1928 in the Veneto region for sales of wines in casks and demi-johns to restaurants and small retailers. In the fifties the family expanded their horizons to selling wines across Central Europe and beyond. Throughout all this expansion, the Botter family retained control and the company is now run by the third generation and from their roots in Veneto they now have a portfolio of wines produced in some of Italy’s finest regions.
100% Pinot Grigio, Italy`s flagship white wine. A pale and delicate lemon-green colour. On the nose this easy drinking Pinot Grigio displays aromas of lemons, apples and white blossom. The palate is full of citrus, pear and melon. Crisp and dry, it has a well balanced acidity with a refined and lingering finish.
Excellent as an aperitif, great with white fish or grilled chicken.
