Head Snapper Pinot Grigio delle Venezie 2013

Another label from The Wine Group that has been proliferating on the shelves of my local stores is It’s A Head Snapper.  I have to say that this label is a true example of just how global the wine business has become.  The folks at It’s A Head Snapper source their wines from all over the world.  Appropriately, then, they went to Italy to get this Pinot Grigio and bring it to my grocery store.

Winemaker:  It’s A Head Snapper
Wine:  Pinot Grigio delle Venezie
Vintage:  2013
Appellation:  Venezie IGT, Italy
Price:  $19.99

Notes:  The color of this wine was so light, I’d call it a hint of yellow.  Like it’s hue, the bouquet was very faint with gentle citrus and floral notes.  It was characteristically light-bodied with high acidity that created a slight feeling of effervescence on the tongue.  At 12.5% alcohol this PG is just a little off dry, but the acidity helps balance that out.  On the palate I tasted almond, bitter orange, grass, and citrus peel.  It was definitely enjoyable – even fun to drink.  I think, perhaps, it was a bit overpriced at twenty dollars.  Something tells me it must be available for less at other retailers.  In which case, I’d buy it again.
