Vitas Pinot Grigio Friuli
Vitas
Italy - Friuli - Friuli DOC

Straw yellow color with elegant copper-gold overtones.
Elegant and intense bouquet with hints of acacia flowers, dry hay, walnut kernel, yellow peach and golden apple, intertwined with fresh and mineral notes. The palate is well-structured, mineral and flavorful. The alcoholic and fresh note gives the wine a pleasant consistency on the finish.
