    Free Delivery from €150 We aim to deliver within 2 working days.

    RICH AND MINERAL MELON DE BOURGOGNE

    A remarkable, top-notch Pinot Grigio from Friuli-Grave in northeast Italy. Aging 6 months on its lees gives it a fuller flavor, with traces of acacia blossom, peach, and nutmeg. It deserves its consistently high ratings.

    Cellaring: Drink now or in the next 4 years. 

    Food PairingA delightful accompaniment to fish, shellfish, and lighter fare, this Pinot Grigio also makes an excellent stand-alone option.

    STORY BEHIND THIS WINE

    It's an excellent pick, as the Cescon winery and its wine boast a proud heritage rooted in all things natural; evidence of this is displayed on the distinctive tralcetto, or vine twig, woven around the bottle neck. This emblem of vineyard authenticity was first used by Italo's mother, Anna, in 1957 and has been a symbol of their wines ever since.

    But was it the first bottle to flaunt the winter-pruned vines around its neck? There may be some debate here - another 'Twig' wine from Abruzzo is made by a family who claim to be the first to do so. But from a wine quality perspective, it doesn't really matter. Of course, the two families don't send each other holiday cards. It's a bit of rivalry.
