Pinot Grigio

The Italian synonym for the Pinot Gris, which was long thought to be a mutation of Pinot Noir but has recently been discovered to be a cross of the Pinot Meunier and Traminer varietals. Pinot Grigio (The Grey Grape as it is known both for the varying and exotic hues of its skin but also for the fogs that blanket the vineyards in northern Italy) can be made in various different styles from crisp and dry to fruity and spicy to sweet and rich. Most examples of Pinot Grigio in Italy have a distinct level of acidity that can make for pleasant wines with notes of peaches, apricots, spices and cream.

The best examples of Pinot Grigio come from the Alto Adige and Trentino regions of northeastern Italy. Although many fine examples exist more often than not Pinot Grigio is a part of the ocean of flabby and bland wines that come from the Lombardy and Veneto areas. Also a part of the Spumante production in those areas as well.
