Imagine if Zegna, Gucci, Prada, Versace, Armani, Moschino, Dolce & Gabbana all got together and said 'let's get together and make some really snazzy clothes' (snazzy after-all is an Italian word) - that's basically what sort of teamwork you're getting with a wine from Nals Margreid. It comprises 100 boutique producers high in Italy's renowned Alto Adige region - and it's way more than the sum of its parts. The Nals Margreid Penon Pinot Bianco, is rated as OUTSTANDING and has definition & intensity, with notes of peaches and nectarines, it's broad, fresh and nutty. We think it's the ultimate white wine for winter months because it can so perfectly offset creamy sauces. So, what are you waiting for? Grab a few cases now!

James Suckling (2014 Vintage) says
Textbook pinot bianco aromas of flowers like honeysuckle. Also stones and lemons. Full body, sliced apple and lemon and a long, flavorful finish. Stylish. From a single vineyard.

The late harvest in October encourages persistence and opulence through a stimulating bouquet of apple and pineapple. A suitable appetizer as an aperitif, and a fruity-fresh companion to light starters, fish dishes and white meats.
