Subtle fruits, apple & pear with crisp, dry mineral finish.
Tasting Notes : A modern Pinot Grigio from northern Italy using techniques to preserve the fresh fruit aromas and flavours in steel tanks and cool temperatures to create this fresh light style. It has a delicate straw yellow colour and delicate aromas full of white flowers and fresh appley fruit aromas. Ca Luca is dry and well-balanced, it retains a refined acidity matching the subtle peach, pear, melon and apple flavours. The fruit flavours mingle on the palate to create an easy-drinking yet elegant wine which lingers with a minerally crisp finish.

The mountainous Abruzzo region is on the east coast of central Italy, which is south of Marche and north of Puglia. The region has two distinct areas with the hillside vineyards having warm continental climate with cooling from the Apennine mountains and then the flatter coastal zone which has a warm Mediterranean climate. Abruzzo is home to the red Montepulciano d’Abruzzo DOC, white Trebbiano d’Abruzzo DOC. Abruzzo mostly produces wines from Montepulciano but also Sangiovese, Pecorino and Passerina as well as more international varietals such as Chardonnay.
