About This Wine

There’s more than one way to enjoy Pinot Grigio.

Most of the time, we chill down this signature white wine of Italy and enjoy it with seafood or perhaps pasta with a creamy white sauce. But as Gio demonstrates with this wine, it also can be made into a delicious Rosato.

Gio (pronounced “Joe”) is short for giovane, the Italian word for young, and this is a wine meant to be enjoyed upon release. Showcasing exceptional balance and a ?avor pro?le characteristic of the delle Venezie and Veneto regions, it is lovingly crafted by a group of local winegrowers whose collaboration dates back to 1948.

A beautiful pale color with an inviting alpine strawberry aroma, its palate is smooth, round and generous with more ripe red fruit and a bright minerality. The ?nish is long and pleasant, with plenty of fruit and fresh acidity to tempt you into another sip.

About Pinot Grigio

In northeast Italy it makes a light, crisp and neutral wine. In Alsace it can be a delicately perfumed, honey-flavored wine, either dry or sweet, and with more color than most whites.
