Natalie's Score: 93/100

This is one of the best, if not the best, Italian Pinot Grigios I've tasted. Sure, the price reflects that but it's worth seeing how vibrant and full of character Pinot Grigio can be with this benchmark wine. Zesty, refreshing and alive in the glass. Aromas of white peach, lime and white grapefruit. Incredibly refreshing and mouth-watering. Great as an aperitif or with many dishes, from seafood to salad. Great structure and finish. Says winemaker Silvio Jermann: "Wines should move us, prompt our emotions and have a sense of authenticity." Amen.

Pinot Grigio food pairings: salads, vegetarian dishes, seafood, cheese, poultry.

Heather Wall CS; WSET Advanced rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

A whopping $34.95 for Pinot Grigio? We all think PG is t go-to wine for the reverse wine snob. Partly true. However, this is a beautiful Pinot Grigio and I wouldn't be embarrassed to order it in a restaurant. A medium lemon colour in the glass with intense aromas of citrus, tree fruit,stone fruit, honey, rose, stony minerality, sweet spices The palate is smooth and velvety with a lengthy finish. I detected a hint of effervescence. Acidity is refreshing and balanced. Seafood , shellfish, creamy pastas. Serve well chilled.

Martha Kelly AIWS, CS rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

From 100% Pinot Grigio grapes this crisp wine surprises with flavours of ripe peach, lemon, minerality, and tree fruit all balanced with medium body and zesty acidity. It has long length on the fruit-driven finish.
Enjoy on its own or pair with loaded salads, creamy seafood dishes, pad Thai or butter chicken - quite versatile.
Drink now or keep through 2015.
Date tasted: November 2014.
