The KRIS winemakers take full advantage of the “delle Venezie” designation by marrying the best fruit from the appellation’s three permitted regions to yield a Pinot Grigio with an unusually expressive flavor profile.  Veneto fruit provides the delicate floral notes and the classic almond finish so typical of this region.  Grapes sourced from the southwest-facing slopes of the village of Montagna in Alto Adige receive ample sun and contribute ripe yet fresh citrus and pear fruit.  The Mulinat estate in Friuli, where the soils are gravelly and well drained produce low-yielding fruit that helps to intensify flavor.  The final blend shows depth of flavor in a bold, Northern Italian style.

Tasting Notes

Brilliant lemon-green in color, KRIS offers enticing aromas of acacia flowers, citrus, tangerine, and hints of almonds. One of Winebow’s best-selling wines and a great value!

Food Pairing

Recommended with risotto, tossed salads, homemade pasta and grilled white meats or salmon.
