Pinot Grigio is a pale, straw or light copper colored Italian varietal wine made with the Pinot Grigio grape, a mutant of the Pinot Noir. The acidic flavor of this white wine makes it one of the most desirable wines which are recommended for consumption when young. This light textured, crisp wine with a dry feel has gained a lot of popularity with the Americans and is perfect as an aperitif or cocktail wine. The fruity flavors and acidic character of the Pinot Grigio wine, built up by the varied diurnal climate, are mainly responsible for its high desirability. Known as a clone of the French Pinot Gris, the Pinot Grigio is prominently grown in the Alto Adige, Friuli and Veneto regions of Italy. As the wine tends to lose its acidity on ripening completely it is usually picked when it is in the initial stages of ripening.
