About This Wine

Amazing things can happen when winemakers are free of generations-old regulations.

The 2016 Scoperta Pinot Grigio provides a delicious example, as it hails from an Italian winegrowing stronghold that not always has been known for that variety. “Terre Siciliane” is the region-wide Indicazione Geografica Tipica title for the island of Sicily. The IGT designation was introduced in 1992 to allow a certain level of freedom to Italy's winemakers. It focuses on the region of origin, rather than grape varieties.

Historically, Sicily’s most famous wine was Marsala, a fortified elixir with an alcohol content of around 20 percent. But when the IGT designation went into effect, winemakers seized on the opportunity to expand their horizons and craft cuvees that are more about savoring with food.

Scoperta’s Pinot Grigio is a diverse companion to food, pairing beautifully with everything from creamy smoked salmon pasta to white cheese chicken lasagna. Cheers to the IGT designation!

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.

    I have always loved Pinot Grigio and this is no different. It was a wonderfully refreshing repose after work.
