Since it was established in 1932, Nals Margreid has focused on creating variety and terroir-driven wines from South Tyrol, where Italy’s northernmost wine-growing region borders on the Alps and the Dolomites.
170 hectares (65% white wine, 35% red wine) are cultivated in vineyards between 250-900 meters above sea level. The grapes from the Penon vineyard turn out small and concentrated, as they ripen late in the high altitudes of the warm town of Penon. They're viniefied into a wine of fresh structure and elegant acidity, with aromas of apple, citrus and ripe pineapple.
There's a lovely Alpine freshness to this wine, which makes it a really interesting alternative to Pinot Grigio from further south in Italy. Goes well with Alpine cheeses and charcuterie.
