In case you don’t know that yet Pinot Grigio, besides being Pinot Noir nephew, is not a white grape variety is actually a red grape…. so the Pinot Grigio you usually drink is a sort of a white zin made wine. Well not this one here. At Santome they make a Brut Sparkling using Pinot Noir run juice (the juice that comes out when the grapes are first pressed with Pinot Grigio lef macerated that it is called in Italian "ramato" (coppery) fermented on lees.  The two grapes do the first fermentation separately then they are blended together in order to start the base for the sparkling.  The process is quite long in order to get a very well balanced result with low residual sugar.   The wine has a delicate scent of apple, peach, strawberries hints of roses. The palate is elegant with balanced acidity with a fresh and dry aftertaste. Excellent as an aperitif it accompanies seafood salads, shellfish all the typical Venetian fish soups. Very good with quiches, souffles. Delicious with the finest Italian "lardo di colonnata".
