Tasting Notes

Notes of meadow flowers, pears, and golden apple. The bouquet is fresh and complex, showing refined notes of sage and mint accompanied by an elegant minerality typical of Pinot Grigio. Medium bodied, lively, and elegant. A touch of minerality lingers in the finish, with notes of lemon peel.

The Story

Pinot Grigio has become Italy's most famous white wine, beloved the world over. Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio comes from the growing regions best suited for high quality Italian Pinot Grigio: Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino. We carefully select the best fruit from high-altitude vineyards that rise dramatically out of flat plains.

The name Lumina (‘illumination of the moon' in Italian) brings attention to the importance of moonlight during a grapevine's life. The label's quarter-moon represents the ancient alchemist's symbol for this satellite of the earth.

Food Pairing Suggestions

Enjoy Ruffino Lumina Pinot Grigio as an apéritif or as a wonderful companion with a variety of foods. It's delicious with prosciutto and mild cheeses, fresh salads, and pasta with cream sauces. It also pairs well with seafood, shellfish, white meat, or Asian dishes.

Winemaker's Notes

We source the grapes for Lumina from the Delle Venezie IGT, an appellation comprised of Veneto, Friuli-Venezia Giulia and Trentino. These are the top regions in Italy for the cultivation of Pinot Grigio. Fermentation takes place in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks.
