Gabbiano 2008 Pinot Grigio

I’m not a fan of Pinot Grigio’s. Generally I find them thin, with not a lot going on. They can be great on a patio in the heat. Light refreshing and can hit the spot. So given the latest heat wave I bought this one. I quite enjoy theiir Chianit which I have previously written up so I thought I would give this one a try. Pale in color mild on the nose. The mid pallet is quite non-descript, thin with not a lot going on. The finish is on the lighter side of medium and is dominated by a green apple tartness. Not strong, not overwhelming but dominant. I was disappointed by this wine and would not buy it again. I would give it an 87 or so.
