Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio was born back in 1986. The first grape selections were carried out in selected vineyards in Eppan/Berg, and a Pinot gris was vinified in small wooden barrels for the first time. With smoothly integrated acidity, power and fullness, the expressive Sanct Valentin Pinot Grigio has been well received for decades. It is one of Italy’s most-awarded Pinot gris wines and promises an excellent drinking experience even after several years of storage.
In the Media (Parker, 2017) 90 Points
The 2015 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio Sanct Valentin shows a distinct personality that prizes freshness, crispness and an attractive layer of aromatic abundance. In fact, the bouquet is far more complex and intense compared to your standard Italian Pinot Grigio. This wine is expressive and articulate, with citrus, passion fruit, honey and apple. Drink this wine within the next few years when its primary aromas are still intact.
