Most Pinot Grigio are neutral, clean whites designed to be had with or without food. Usually nothing special... Terlano, a winemaking town in Alto Adige (North Italy) are going a different route. The vineyards are steep, the weather is cool, and the grapes can rival champagne in price, but the wines are usually pretty economic for the quality. Extended skin and lees contact, cool fermentation to preserve aromas, and minimal intervention in the winery are what make these wines soo delicious!
You really want to try an amazingly vivid and complex white from this region, check out their Cuvée Terlaner. 80% Pinot Blanc, 30% Chardonnay, and 10% Sauvignon Blanc... it will make a Meursault seem boring.
