2017 Safràn Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie

Fall hard for this stunning but little known Pinot Grigio adored by Luca Maroni, the Robert Parker of Italy! Available exclusively through BHW, this vintage explodes with fruity flavors, particularly ripe pear, and notes of sage and spice to add complexity to the well-rounded bouquet. It's a masterclass in elegance, balancing exactly the right amount of acidity with a creamy fullness, an uplifting mineral zing and a lingering fresh fruit finish. The masses may be slaves to Chardonnay, but the debut of Pinot Grigio delle Venezie Safràn, 2017 in the U.S. will have shrewd wine buyers clearing space for a case of this outstanding quality-led vintage in their collection.


About the wine

Pale, clear straw yellow like morning light streaming through a window, this is the perfect wine to enjoy over lunch on a warm summer day, preferably with an ocean view. This Pinot Grigio is a sucker for seafood, pairing beautifully with delights such as fritto misto, light pasta sauces with clams, cream or fresh tomato, seafood salad, even a velvety carbonara. Light and refreshing with the perfect balance of acidity and creaminess, it also sings alongside fried chicken and chicken enchiladas.
