Attems Pinot Grigio 2019, Friuli DOC, Italy
Selected for our ‘guest’ wine range thanks to it’s quality and character. Attems is a name that encompasses the history of wine in Friuli Venezia Giulia. Indeed there is documentation that confirms ownership of land dedicated to viticulture in Collio by the Attems dynasty dating as far back as 1106. The Attems brand is owned and managed by the Frescobaldi family who have 700 years of history of viticulture in Italy. All of their wines show incredible character and elegance.
The wine is a clear, straw yellow. The nose expresses great personality with fresh aromas of white peach, citrus peel and wildflowers as well as definite scents of thyme and toasted bread. In its structured body we find a wine with balance and complexity with a persistent finish of white pepper, avocado and walnut. Let’s be clear, Italian Pinot Grigio can bring to the thought of mass produced generic insipid green fruit. Attems Pinot Grigio is on a different planet altogether. This is what Pinot Grigio can achieve when in the hands of a producer focusing on quality, not quantity.
