By far – the top selling Pinot Grigio in Nicholas Wines history is Diego Bolognani’s delectable example from high atop Trento overlooking the Dolomite Mountains. The Bolognani family is very unassuming, but have been quietly crafting some of the best Pinot Grigio in the world for almost 70 years now.
There’s really no close second to Diego’s wines in the region. But that’s not just me saying that. I’ve been on the phone with a handful of producers throughout Alto Adige and Trentino. When I tell them I’m looking for a replacement for Diego Bolognani, there’s been a consensus groan on the other end. Here’s what one of the producers told me: “A replacement for Diego Bolognani? That’s not possible. His Pinot Grigios carry immense weight in Italy; he is viewed as an icon.” Welp.
So it’s with a good deal of sadness that I have to report that Diego Bolognani has decided to retire. This wine life isn’t an easy one and the business will not be passing on to the next generation. So the 2020 Bolognani Pinot Grigio will be the last ever.
Out of stock
It’s everything you want in Pinot Grigio….aromatic, crisp and clean. Load up on the new vintage and drink it while it’s fresh!
If I had to think of one wine to pair with a hot dog and the works it would probably be Diego Bolognani’s brilliant Pinot Grigio.
