Chilled before drinking. Clear and colorless. Citrus, Granny Smith apple and lots of floral aromas that ended with just a touch of honeysuckle. Fresh, lively and a little brash mouthfeel, 150-grit texture and a light body. Strong fresh flavors of lemon, green apple and lime. Bright acidity and a medium length fresh fruit finish that had a delicious edge of tartness. It has been a while since we have had an inexpensive grocery store Italian Pinot Grigio and this one quickly brought back memories of the fresh raw vitality these Italian wines possess. Although this one was a little rough and ready, it’s as fresh as mountain air, filled with the smell of floral blossoms and had a noteworthy balance of fruit and mineral tastes. We called it a clean easy drinking and inexpensive Pinot Grigio.
