Inexpensive, yet surprisingly different.
A richer pinot grigio that is perfect for end-of-summer meals.
Although each DOC deserves attention, the latest one is a bit different, because it seems to be the largest appellation reserved for pinot grigio.
Honeyed aromas, very fruity, with honeyed, peachy flavors, and honey even in the finish. Fruit and citrus overwhelm the crispness you’d expect to find in a wine made from pinot grigio grapes. It’s a nice example of a modern sweet wine, probably a crowd-pleaser, but not really a pinot grigio. Maybe they should rename it? Recommended with reservations. BSE
