Pinot Grigio is the generic Italian white but have you tried some of the wonderful regional whites, such as Arneis from Piedmont? The one Iâ€™m recommending delivers freshness, subtle flavours and an elegant, poised feeling. Wonderful aperitif for a fancy meal in how it sets the tone without attracting attention to itself â€“ the wine equivalent of fine linen. There is some body to partner the freshness, so itâ€™s ideal for fish, meat or savoury/pastry dishes.
