With its delicate aromas and delicious flavors, our 2012 Ferrari-Carano Pinot Grigio is a refreshing, light-style white wine for sipping or as an aperitif. This wine has aromas of nectarine, lime, melon and honeysuckle complemented by flavors of Meyer lemon, white peach and honeydew melon. Our Pinot Grigio has clean, refreshing acidity with a round mouthfeel and a crisp, lingering finish.
Grapes from select vineyard in Russian River Valley, Napa Valley Carneros, Dry Creek Valley and Alexander Valley create this refreshing, aromatic wine. The 2012 vintage began with wind during bloom that disrupted pollination in some vineyards, nevertheless the vines still produced an abundance of large clusters with large berries that required thinning. Consistently warm weather lengthened the time for ripening the grapes and reduced natural acidity levels. Harvest began the beginning of September and was completed a month later, in October.
Smoked Salmon and Goat Cheese Quiche. Pinot Grigio is an ideal wine to pair with many types of cuisines. Our favorite pairings include dishes such as seafood salad, pan-seared scallops, oysters on the half shell, or entrées with lively and spicy flavors one might find in Asian cuisine.
