The gray Pinot is a direct descendant of the black one, obtained thanks to a particular mutation of gem.
The cultivation of Pinot Grigio began in Burgundy, which represents the area that still today has the best climatic conditions for its development.
Subsequently, its production spread internationally.
The taste of Pinot Grigio differs based on the production area. In places with constant and cold climate you will have a wine with an excellent body and structure and a velvety and soft taste, if instead the place is characterized by notable thermal excursions Pinot Grigio will have a fruity taste and a strong body. The Pinot Grigio can also have a different color, depending on the vinification techniques. When in contact with the skins it has a coppery color, while without it you get a wine with lighter and clearer tones.
