When the weather gets hot, we look towards light-bodied whites that can be served well chilled, while still retaining its flavor and charm. That's why during the summer months, Pinot Grigio is hands down one of the top selling white wines in the United States. At the Wine Buyer, we get more phone calls and e-mails about recommending our favorite bottle than any other wine in the category. A great Italian Pinot Grigio has the perfect balance of bright aromas, big flavors and outstanding versatility with foods.
Produced in a truly special region of Northern Italy, the Luca Grucci Pinot Grigio is crafted in Collio, considered by Italians to be Friuli's finest area of production. Its unique character comes from a gravelly amphitheater overlooking the Adriatic on the continuation of the foot of the Alps exposed directly to the south. The wines crafted in this area are both unique and distinctive, with pronounced intensity, exceptional purity of fruit, and perhaps the loftiest expression of the varietal.
"A beautiful floral and fruity bouquet with a rich,round mouth feel with hints of apple, slate and toasted almond and a very good finish." The Wine Buyer, 92 Points
