About This Wine
45% Pinot Bianco, the remainder split between Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc, grown at 448 metres (hence the name) on mineral-rich hillside vineyards of Alto Adige's Cornaiano canton. The name not only refers to the altitude of the source vineyards, but also to a local expression: '448' or "quattro quattro otto" is a local saying for "hurry up" or "chop chop". So there's a bit of a Tyrolean word play going on here.
his is a mouth filling, aromatic blend for drinking any time of the day and night. Similarly weighted to a Loire white, it's a juicy, energetic wine marked by mouth-watering scents of spring blossoms, citrus and stone fruit nuances. The palate is tangy and refreshing, then juicy and textural as it builds in the glass. A good step above in depth and interest to your garden variety Pinot Grigio, it's especially good with spicy food-though its versatility and drink-me balance also single it out as an excellent pouring option.
