PINOT GRIGIO IGT VENETO 2020 BY LUIGI RIGHETTI
Talk about wine imitating sentiment – how refreshing to finally find Pinot Grigio IGT Veneto 2020 from a great terroir. This is the kind of wine you’re going to want to brag about to your “look down their nose at Pinot Grigio” friends.
Pitch perfect balance, spring flowers, stone fruit and just a touch of minerality – this is far more than a simple refresher. This is what Pinot Grigio is supposed to taste like.
The Righetti name is synonymous with quality from their entry-level Pinot Grigio, to their Valpolicella Ripasso , right up to their top tier Amarone. There is a certain amount of pride when your family name goes on a bottle. With great pride and commitment, you must personally ensure that there is a quality product inside every bottle. That’s how Luigi Righetti has become one of the most recognizable names in the northern Italian region of the Veneto, making wines since 1909. Their delicious wines are balanced and well structured and continue to come in at affordable price-points.
This is absolutely Pinot Grigio “AF” (At its Finest)! You deserve to drink better – and this is as far from the boring factory style blending house Pinot Grigios out there as chalk from cheese. For a small trade up in price, you get a profoundly better wine.

TASTING NOTE / Pinot Grigio is one of the top, internationally renowned Italian grape varietals and has become one the most highly regarded Italian white wines. Unlike many Pinot Grigio, Righetti’s shows good mid-palate weight and fruit concentration. The nose has floral aromas with overtones of pistachios and just a hint of honey. The palate is soft and round with a long, clean citrus finish. Starting in 2017, Pinot Grigio from Veneto has the option of being labeled as DOC, and Luigi Righetti chose to do so as a means of guaranteeing quality.
A LITTLE HISTORY
Located in Valgatara, in the depths of Valpolicella Classico, sits the family-run Luigi Righetti estate.
