Recommendation: GREAT Pinot Grigio at a BARGAIN price.

Paired With: Sipping.

Tasting:

    He said: All we said in the original review of this wine is “right-on.” But I did want to add how mellow and smooth it is from mid-palate all the way through the medium-long finish, and it’s now darker oat straw color (and maybe a little less crisp) than the first bottle we had about 10 months ago. This is a GREAT, INEXPENSIVE Italian Pinot Grigio…it’s so easy drinking, and it’s in the category of one of the best Wine Bargains we have run across. It is truly a Quality Wine at a Bargain Price.

    She said: I like it as much not as I did the first time. It does not have the strong citrus taste and has no bite as many Pinot Grigio’s do, but it is a delightful sipping wine and I have to restrain myself so I don’t scarf it down! It’s a bargain Pinot Grigio.

    Comments: See our comments from the first tasting of this Bidoli Friuli Grave Pinot Grigio 2012.
