LE19 Pecorino Pinot Grigio 18L (available Jan 2020)

$146.95

Pinot Grigio was originally established as Pinot Gris in
Burgundy and although most famous in Alsace,
France, made its way to Switzerland in the 1300s and
eventually to Northern Italy where Pinot Grigio was
born. Today it is Italy’s most popular grape. Pecorino
has a bit of a different history; thought to be extinct in the mid-20th century, it was
rediscovered in the 1980s by a local producer who then took cuttings and propagated them
resulting in this grape’s resurgence. Blending Pinot Grigio, the most popular Italian white
wine grape, with the lesser-known Pecorino grape results in a delicate white wine with high
acidity, lemon, lime and honeysuckle flavors, and an elegant floral aroma. Pair with
steamed mussels, seafood risotto and vegetarian spring rolls.
Dry | Med. Body | No Oak | 12.5% ABV*
