|The Pedrottivini is a family-owned wine company with a long history. At the beginning of the last century, Italo Pedrotti was an expert viticulturist and fine enologist who started with the mindset of producing the highest-quality wine. The same principles are still valid today for the company, managed now by his son, Iginio Pedrotti.
Through experience comes knowledge, and almost 700 years of winemaking expertise and an intimate understanding of the regionís unique land, air and water elements make Altanuta a wine of uncommon elegance, craftsmanship and taste.
Located in the Valdadige region, in the northeast corner of Italy near Austria, Altanuta is created from grapes grown on rugged, mountainous slopes that rose from immense upheaval in the earthís crust millions of years ago. Appropriately, even the wineís name, Altanuta (alto = high, tenuta = estate), evokes the crisp, refreshing mountain breezes and remote terrain of its birthplace. It is the combination of high altitude air, soil composition and close proximity to the sunís rays that gives Altanuta Pinot Grigio its distinguished character memorable flavor to be savored with food, yet light enough to be enjoyed as an aperitif.
Altanuta. Truly the highest expression of Pinot Grigio.
