Gabbiano Pinot Grigio 2013

The name of this wine, Promessa, means promise in Italian.  Promise, according to Merriam-Webster, is reason to expect something; especially :  ground for expectation of success, improvement, or excellence.  What a lovely, uplifting name for a wine!  It conveys a feeling of hope and anticipation to those who choose to pop the cork and experience the vino.

Notes:  The color of this Gabbiano was a pale straw.  On the bouquet I smelled citrus and peach.  A light-bodied wine, it had a touch of the typical varietal viscosity.  Acidity was good, and alcohol was at 12.5%.  On the palate I tasted fairly straightforward flavors of citrus and grass with touches of peach.  I found it a pleasant Pinot Grigio and think it would be good with seafood dishes and light cheeses such as chevre, fresh mozzarella, etc.
