Tasting:

    He said: Chilled before drinking. Clear, almost colorless. Light citrus and a hint of floral aroma. Sweet (almost tropical) citrus taste with mild acidity and tart smooth finish. Disappointing as an Italian Pinot Grigio. It lacked crisp freshness, was not light and only off dry. Even at $9.99 I believe there are better choices of Italian Pinot Grigio available, thus would try others before buying this one again.

    She said: Clear, very pale lemon yellow color. The soft sweet aroma led seamlessly to a medium bodied mouth feel that carried on into the medium-length finish that ended with a touch of tartness. The wine lacked the crisp taste that is usually associated with Pinot Grigio, but I did like it with the salad.
