Tasting Notes

Pinot Grigio is the most beloved of all Italian white wines. Made with 100% estate-owned grapes (15 to 20 years old), Borgo Magredo Pinot Grigio is bright, bouncy and open-knit, with a citrus-infused flavor profile and lively acidity. Hints of white peach, ground ginger and honey are layered on the finish.

Very versatile, it can be paired with appetizers, salads, fried or grilled calamari, seafood pastas and light seafood fares.

With approx. 200 hectares of vineyards in the Grave del Friuli DOC appellation, Borgo Magredo is one of the largest estates in Friuli. Acquired by the Genagricola group in 1989, Borgo Magredo grew over the years to achieve the perfect combination of century-old enological culture and contemporary drinking style.
