Pinot Grigio in the middle of winter when the temperatures are in the teens (Fahrenheit) outside? Well, why not? Although I’m really not one to stand on convention, I will admit that there was another more personal – and more vain – reason for drinking a light white now. I have an appointment to have my picture taken by a professional photographer, and I want the brightest smile I can muster. Ha!
Wine: Pinot Grigio delle Venezie
Appellation: Venezie IGT, Italy
Notes: This Cavit PG was a pale yellow with scents of lemon, grass and pear on the nose. It was characteristically light-bodied with good acidity and 12% alcohol. Flavors I found mirrored the bouquet – lemon, grass and pear. The finish was long and lemony. I think this is a good sipping white and would go very well with a light white fish.
