>> "Good northern Italian pinot grigio is a style many winemakers in other countries aspire to, but most fall well short of the target. This one combines a nicely overt fruitiness with the delicacy and immediate quaffability that we expect of the style. Scented with honeydew melon and stone fruit, the wine has a degree of richness and is intense but soft in the mouth. A clean, beautifully made drop that glides easily across the palate."
