|Julia Kelada 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!
