Sensory profile A shimmer of wheat greets the eye, a sheen of bread, of blond topaz shot with hints of gold! Regal in the glass, it lacks only bubbles to be an elegant flute of Champagne. Ascending the crystal bowl are comfortable, home-evoking fragrances of ripe apples and pears, those homemade cakes and pies of our childhood, dense concoctions of hazelnut crème and sweet almonds, and bewitching banana and ripe strawberry frullato. This self-confident amalgam of fragrances of fruits that have achieved iconic stature in the Western world is the seductive quintessence of Pinot Grigio, of this Pinot Grigio, in fact! It enters the mouth with a warm toastiness, and expands to fill the palate largely with spirituous effusions and for the rest with dense-packed impressions of fruit and earthy mineral, until it concludes in a near-endless finale laden with roasted nuts and dried fruit and with that classic touch of bitterish almond. Overall, a forthright- charactered Pinot that is coherent of all three stages.


Pairings It will confidently stand up to fairly hearty dishes—antipasti, fries, battered foods, and risottos are its cherished siblings at table!
