Pensiero

A little gift

The lovely musical-chair rhythm of giving and giving leaves no one standing alone.

Pensiero—a basket of figs, a melon warm from the garden, an armful of pink hydrangeas, a carved walking stick, a jar of wild cherries. Tuscans always arrive with a little gift, perhaps a bottle of sunny wine, which is what the angels sip when they fly over Italy.

Vinification: Form one of Alto Adiges oldest white wine production areas, Pensiero Pinot Grigio is mainly produced on the Pergola system with plenty of sun exposure. The grapes are pressed softly, clarified through natural gravity sediment settling, and finally fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. Prior to bottling, the wine is aged for 5 month on fine lees in the tank. 2012 Italian White Wine 100% Pinot Grigio Alc. 12.5% vol.

Tasting Notes: Light green lustres run through the radiant straw-yellow color of this wine, whose aroma is rich in pears and apples. An excellent balance gives this wine strength and structure. It is dry and smooth on the palate with a pleasant, mineral aftertaste.

Serving Suggestions: Pensiero goes well with many dishes, especially lighter foods, fried mushrooms and fresh water fish.
