Altùris Pinot Grigio 2019
9 in stock
From a famous region of Italy that is known for the production of the highest quality white wines.
This very fine Friulli Pinot Grigio is crisp and fresh. This is very far from the experience of a mass market commercial Pinot Grigio. Straw yellow in colour, the wine has a refined, broad and complex bouquet, with notes of exotic fruit, hay, bread crust and toasted almond. It is dry, full bodied from lees ageing and savoury. Mouth-cleansing acidity.
Vinified in glass lined cement tanks ‘Sur Lie’ after harvesting by hand.
A classic wine for aperitifs and fish-based appetisers. Pairs extremely well with shellfish or white meats.
Serving temperature: 10-12 degrees

This very special winery is located in the beautiful hills of Friuli, known as Italian White Wine Heaven: Friuli-Venezia Giulia, which in their mother tongue are called “Altùris”: a geometry of reliefs engraved by vineyards. Although the region is relatively small compared to the rest of Italy, it ranks among the best for producers of white wines.
It is in this revered place that Marco and Massimo Zorzettig, heirs of a historical family, which has been a symbol of solid entrepreneurship in the wine world for three generations, founded Altùris.
The winery is devoted to the creation of exquisite wines, capable
of carrying all the scents and aromas that the grapes of this unique terroir offer.
At the far North East of Italy, close to Venice and at short walk from Cividale del Friuli at the border with Austria and Slovenia, Altùris vines benefit of an unique microclimate. The Julian Alps protect them from the cold winds of North, while the breezes from Adriatic Sea smooth and mitigate the climate, offering the vineyards exceptional conditions to produce grand quality wines.
The production at Altùris winery is set for 70 percent whites and 30 percent reds. They also produce incredibly great reds.
