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
Appellation: Venezie IGT, Italy
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.
