The grapes for the Montevento Pinot Grigio Rose come from the picturesque countryside surrounding Verona and Treviso in the north east of Italy. The foothills of the Alps to the north of the Veneto region protect it from the harsh weather blowing down from northern Europe, while the area remains mild but cool - ideal for the production of lively, crisp white wine styles.
"A fresh, well balanced and fruity wine with elegant, floral notes and hints of pear and apricot."
Italy’s Veneto wine region has played a pivotal part in Italy’s wine culture since Roman times, boosted by its strategic location close to Venice and the Adriatic. Today the Veneto is a thriving wine region, responsible for almost a sixth of Italy’s wine production and the source of Italy’s most successful contemporary wine ‘brand’ Pinot Grigio, a light-bodied dry white wine made from vineyards on the plains. Behind Venice, the Conegliano hills are home to Prosecco, the white grape and sparkling white wine style now taking the world by storm.
