rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

When it comes to white wine, I have very little knowledge of grape types and soil conditions.
I almost feel like I still have my training wheels on when it comes to whites, but the great thing about this process of discovery is that I feel like a child on Christmas morning! Something that looks watery and insipid, turns out to be packed with mouthwatering thirst quenching flavour. 
I almost feel a little embarrassed to admit that I watch those reality shows where all of the women are drinking Pinot Grigio to the point that I wondered if it was a certain brand of water! I have never tried it and had already made my mind up that I wasn't going to like it!
Then one hot evening, enjoying a wonderful dinner party, one of the guests brought a Pinto Grigio, "Bolla". Dutifully I accepted a glass, and there it was again! Christmas morning!

On the nose there were crisp honey dew melon tones, cucumbers, pear, a thirst quenching fruit salad on a hot day.

On the palate, it was light, dry and fruity. Fruit notes of Peaches, pears, vanilla. Delicious mild acidity with a light vegetal undertone. Medium length tannins. Refreshing and delicious!
At $14.60, no wonder they're drinking it like water! 
I give this a 90.
Especially good with a plateful of entrées, fish, chicken and of course if you're like me.....just by itself!

Bottoms up!

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
