Casnati produces limited amounts of classic varietals like Malbec, while upholding those of the Italian tradition, like Pinot Grigio, using Argentina’s unique terroir to enhance the flavors of the wines. The Casnati vineyards reside in Valle de Uco, located 3,500 feet above sea level where warm days and cool nights, in conjunction with Andes Mountain runoff, give grapes unparalleled character and acidity.
The alluvium, sandy soil and scarce annual rainfall account for the grapes’ ideal ripeness upon harvest. These conditions, combined with Max’s great care and attention to detail, result in standout wines, that exhibit great structure and flavor, as well as unique characteristics that reveal Casnati’s style.
Notes of honeydew and papaya meet hints of coconut and fresh grass on this refreshing Pinot Grigio. Light-bodied and zippy, flavors of key lime pie emerge with notes of green apple and pink grapefruit on a bright and gripping finish. Try this zippy Pinot Grigio with black cod, angel hair pasta with pesto, or a fresh vegetable risotto.
