Pinot Grigio

Other wines of Rocca Bernarda

The Pinot Grigio grape reaches its full potential in the land of Friuli. At Rocca Bernarda, it is the first variety to be harvested. Pinot Grigio has a characteristically sweet aroma that recalls apricot, pears and acacia blossoms. On the palate: dry, elegant and full-bodied with a distinct minerality.
