As Pinot Grigio has become such a sales phenomenon, producers in many regions if Italy have begun to produce this wine. The most famous examples are from cool regions in the north, such as Alto Adige and Friuli. Examples from here have very good acidity and more pronounced aromatics of ripe apple, pear and yellow flowers.

Examples from other slightly warmer regions such as Tuscany and Umbria are pleasant wines, yet display only modest perfumes and are often rather light and one-dimensional. It is definitely in one's favor to seek out Pinot Grigio from the cooler regions from Italy's north.

Enjoy these wines from two to three years of age' do not age them any longer, except in rare instances. These are best paired with lighter seafood, risotto and salads.
