Back to the Italians for a pleasant, brisk white wine. Yes, it’s a Pinot Grigio!
Winemaker: Castello di Gabbiano
Wine: Pinot Grigio delle Venezie
Appellation: Venezie IGT, Italy
Notes: On the nose I found citrus, pear and spice. It was fairly light-bodied – appropriately so. Flavors for me were an abundance of citrus, some creamy pear, spice notes and even a little hint of apple here and there. On the finish I found a very present bitter grass with an underlying minerality. Alcohol was at 12.5%. Acidity was very good. I can totally see this wine served up with a fish dish in a light sauce or perhaps a nice chicken piccata.
