"Dark straw color. Clean and fresh on the nose but also ripe in keeping with the year, with aromas and flavors of pear, honey and yellow flowers. The Pinot Grigio finishes long and luscious. In 2017 this is close in quality to the more expensive, top of the line Auger Pinot Grigio made by San Michele Appiano, and that’s almost never the case." (VM)

Winery Notes:
Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio was born back in 1986. The first grape selections were carried out in selected vineyards in Eppan/Berg, and a Pinot gris was vinified in small wooden barrels for the first time. With smoothly integrated acidity, power and fullness, the expressive Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio has been well received for decades. It is one of Italy’s most-awarded Pinot gris wines and promises an excellent drinking experience even after several years of storage.
