This Pinot Grigio pours a light straw color, and immediately shows off a nice grassy nose with a little lemon zest. It is a stylistically Italian nose; subtle with nice minerality. Green apple, fresh lime, and limestone come through on the palate, focused and defined. It displays the crisp acidity familiar to Pinot Grigio lovers, but what sets this wine apart is its depth and lushness. The finish is long and intense, with hints of marmalade and citrus sorbet. Refreshing and refined, this Pinot Grigio will appeal to casual drinkers and enthusiasts alike.
Because of its depth and intensity of flavor, this Pinot Grigio can stand up to heartier dishes. Seafood pairs readily with this wine, as would a shellfish risotto or Papperadelle pasta with a lemon cream sauce. On the lighter side, a Greek salad or dolmas would make a nice pairing, as would a Margherita pizza for a simple summer luxury.
