Pinot Grigio Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2015 (mini review)

Pale in color with a lovely crisp nose, with some nice minerality coming through. On the mid palate the wine matches the nose with some lovely crisp citrus notes. On the medium length finish the wine displays some lovely vibrant acidity that lives on nicely in the mouth. This would be a super food friendly wine. I would give it an 88-89, very nice. Not in the LCBO but $19.95 a bottle. I couldn’t find the supplier in Ontario 🙁

From the winery’s web site for a different year:
Pinot Grigio Vigneti delle Dolomiti IGT 2016
Made from 100% Pinot Grigio, this wine radiates youthfulness and purity of fruit. This is achieved through stainless steel fermentation and the use of a cork-free closure.

Wine Production
Temperature-controlled fermentation at 68 °F in steel tanks; four-month aging on the fine lees in concrete vats prior to bottling.

Tasting Notes
Straw yellow in color with lemon highlights, this Pinot Grigio is youthful and lively. On the nose, this wine has aromas of citrus, white flowers, pears, apples, and meadow grass. Up-front citrus flavors give way to stony minerality and a crisp finish.

Food Pairing
Wonderful as an apperativ as well as a wine that will pair well with butter-poached fish, scampi’s, and pasta primavera.
