All about Pinot Grigio
Pinot Grigio wine originates from Central Europe and specifically from some regions of Italy and France. With its refreshing and classic flavor, it's a classic choice in the heat of the summer. The Pinot Grigio grape is a mutation of the one used for the Pinot Noir, another famous wine from Italy and France. While Pinot Noir is better known, Pinot Grigio has a very interesting flavor profile as well. Are you ready to learn more about the most imported wine in the United States?
Pinot Grigio's flavor profile
The zesty white wine includes two main categories: Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris. The first one, called Pinot Grigio, derives from a grape variety grown in northeastern Italy. It has refreshing notes of honeysuckle, citrus and green apple. It's not as sweet as Riesling but is fairly dry. For a richer flavor, try Pinot Gris, which originates from France and has fruity, citrusy and floral notes. Pinot Gris features slightly smoky notes thanks to the volcanic soils in the area where it's produced. The sophisticated white wine also comes from Oregon and New Zealand. The grapes from these regions create a mix of the flavor profiles of Pinot Grigio and Pinot Gris. Pinot Grigio also comes in rosé varieties with pleasant fruity and floral notes.
How to match Pinot Grigio with foods
The Pinot Grigio white wine pairs well with savory and sweet dishes. It enhances the light flavor of foods such as fresh fruit, sandwiches and pasta salad, so bring a chilled bottle to your next outdoor picnic. However, Pinot Grigio also blends well with heartier dishes made with seafood, hard cheeses or chicken. The white wine helps cut the acid of some foods, making them more digestible. Try serving it with high-acidity dishes such as spaghetti.
