100% PINOT GRIGIO
Fattori Pinot Grigio "Valparadiso"
Antonio Fattori, who runs this 25 hectare property, comes from a family of winemakers in Veneto. With over a century of history, the winery has accumulated a solid base for continuing improvement and some expansion. Antonio made a decision in the early ’90s to produce his own wine with his own label, to begin to place the wines into the international market. The wines are splendid, superbly clean and well made, brimming with fruit and wonderfully balanced acidity. The brothers are extremely modest and humble, allowing their wines to speak for them.
