Full Fat White is a blend of four different grapes, each contributing different elements to the wine: Pinot Grigio gives a zesty, citrus backbone, Arneis adds flavours of pear and grapefruit, Chardonnay loads on tropical fruit flavours and a drop of Moscatel adds aromatic floral notes.
After blending, the wine is then left for 4 months “sur lie” in stainless steel tanks. The resulting palate is luscious, with lemon curd and lime brulée flavours to the fore, undercut by thirst-quenching drinkability.
There’s a lot going on in this wine which means it a food friendly star favourite. It we were pushed to food match, we’d enjoy this one with a bucket load of seafood.
Pinot Grigio can sometimes have a bad reputation for being a flavourless choice. We searched everywhere for a perfect example of this classic wine and Le Magnolie’s vineyards at high altitude makes for its dry, crisp taste with a finely balanced acidity and heaps of flavour.
Produced in the hills that extend east from Lake Garda and surround Verona. This bright pale yellow Pinot Grigio is fresh and dry with a well-balanced acidity. With a bouquet that is elegantly fruity with soft hints of pear. Always best served when it is well chilled and delicious as an aperitif or with fish dishes, white meat, and cheese.
