Nobilissima Pinot Grigio 750ml
$51.99 price per bottle
Wine maker notes Nobilissima pays tribute to the protector of Venice, a winged lion that sits atop the majestic eastern column in the Piazzetta di San Marco and has come to symbolize the strength and pride of its people. Crafted from the historic delle Venezie regions – Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino-Alto Adige – Nobilissima is a reflection of the legendary spirit of Italy. Elegant, refreshing and light on the palate, Nobilissima Pinot Grigio offers crisp, vibrant flavors of citrus and tropical fruit with lingering notes of an Artemisia bouquet.
Producer Accentuated by lavish masks and ostentatious costumes, Piazza San Marco (St. Mark’s Square) is beset with candelabras, draped lights and fireworks. The Lion of Venice overlooks as acrobats, jugglers, ropewalkers and dancers perform for their ardent audiences. The Grand Canal abounds with gondolas and celebratory boats on parade, while theatres, cafes and wine shops are immersed by inspired patrons. Sprinkled throughout the Square, musicians play traditional Venetian melodies from their guitars as the people dance and sip the night away under the stars. One of the world’s most infamous masquerades. A festival of extravagance. A celebration of ten days. This is Venice’s Carnevale. An affair that has existed since the Middle Ages and marks the beginning of Lent.
