  4. Artist Cuvée Pinot Grigio

KRIS Artist Cuvee takes full advantage of the “delle Venezie” designation by marrying the best fruit from the appellation’s three permitted regions. Veneto fruit provides the delicate floral notes. Grapes sourced from the southwest facing slopes of Trentino receive ample sun and contribute ripe, yet fresh, citrus. Soil from the Friuli vineyards is well drained, which helps to limit yields and intensify flavor.

Tasting Notes

Expressive citrus, floral and mineral notes with a crisp and refreshing acidity. Sharp clarity with an elegant lemon-green hue.

Food Pairing

Recommended with light pasta dishes, grilled vegetable, tossed salads and white meat or light fish.
