Chicken is the best backup food to pair with Pinot Grigio, because of its texture and soft flavor. It’s light on the palate, and if marinated with either lemon and or white wine, it becomes a remarkable pairing.Try it also with Friuli's is nutty-tasting San Daniele prosciutto.
It's pairs beautifully with shrimp, scallops, fish. Try a thai-style shrimp stir fry with chilis and peppers. Friulano balances nicely with shellfish, and the round acidity will give a great contrasting bite to spicy peppers.
Cow’s milk helps to bring out some of the sweeter flavors in Pinot Grigio (Brie, Gruyere, Mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano). Sheep’s milk (Gouda, Roquefort, Manchego, Fleur du Marquis, Etorki) tends to help accentuate the more earthy and mineral tones of it.

PINOT GRIGIO , DOC FRIULI
Alc. 13 % by vol.
Pinot Grigio is often called a white grape, but that is incorrect, since it is not white at all. The name itself (grigio means grey) indicates that it is not perfectly white, in fact it is thought to be a mutant clone of the Pinot Noire variety and it normally has a grayish-blue fruit.
This is exactly where we decided to start, from the berry itself, in order to highlight all of the quality potential of this variety.
The grapes are closed in a tank for a 18 hours long skin maceration. Then the skins are separated and the must is transferred to temperature-controlled fermentation still vats. The wine stayed on the lees for all of its life before bottling and is taken far from oxigen to preserve the colour.
The “GOSSIP” Pinot Grigio exhibits a beautiful, light copper color with luminescent clarity. The lush aromas include wild strawberry, elderberry, hay and dried roses with hints of dried fruits and almond. A beautiful balance of robust fruit and crisp acidity characterize the complex palate with flavors that mirror the notes found in the wine’s bouquet.
Corked with composite DIAM corks.
