San Angelo

Toscana IGT Pinot Grigio

The Whites

Production Area

Estate vineyards, in the southern hills of Montalcino. Altitude: 300 meters above sea level. Position: Hillside.

GRAPE VARIETIES

100% Pinot Grigio

Method of production

Selective grape harvest. The temperature-controlled fermentation (15-18°C) of the free-run juice is followed by storage at low temperature, which leaves a small and natural effervescence. A few months after the harvest, before the year ends, bottling takes place.

The winemaker comment

This 100% Pinot Grigio belongs to Castello Banfi estate-bottled single-varietals range. Thanks to the Montalcino microclimate our Tuscan Pinot Grigio adds to the typical aromas of this variety an unusual body, flavour and balance.
