rated this wine as Valérie Dufour Accredited Sommelier with the following review: 92/ 100 Subtle nose with mineral aromas. Beautifully made Pinot Grigio with a little effervescence. Straight forward. Crisp acidity. Had it with Caprese salad and it was delicious. But since it is the fall and this Venetia-Julia wine will make your oysters party a success.
rated this wine as Heather Wall CS; WSET Certified with the following review: 91/ 100 In the words of Ruffino Brand Ambassador Robert Ghezzo this is Pinot Grigio the way it was meant to be. Salivating! Pale straw yellow with a hint of green. Light and refreshing. Golden delicious apple, pears, floral, citrus. A barely evident effervescence "typical from the terroir this wine is produced", says Robert. Grilled tiger prawn. Excellent salad wine.
rated this wine as Louise Wilson ISG Sommelier with the following review: 91/ 100 A crisp, dry, unoaked wine, offering notes of lemon zest and grilled almond. With a light body and relatively low alcohol, this crowd pleaser makes the the perfect accompaniment for a sunny Sunday picnic. Drink through 2014 for maximum freshness. Tasted March 2014.
rated this wine as Andrew Bernardo Wine Journal with the following review: 90/ 100 100% Pinot Grigio, light golden colour, featuring pears, unripe white peach, straw, and a hint of caper brine on the finish (a good thing!). 90 Points. -Rachel (ottawawinejournal.com)
rated this wine as Malcolm Lamont WSET Adv with the following review: 89/ 100 LIght, crisp aromas on this 2012 Pinot Grigio, with a certain, oaky and charred toast characteristic, which I find quite unique and pleasant, and was surprised to find out its 100% stainless steel fermentation. Very smooth on the palate, and pairs wonderfully with the light caprese salad! Tasted October 2013
rated this wine as Nick Onischuk Accredited Sommelier with the following review: 89/ 100 The aromas of pear, minerality and floral notes were quite pleasing. On the palate, this wine was simply delicious, with pear, apple and citrus. Tasted October 19,2013 (89/100)
rated this wine as Jane Staples Certified Sommelier with the following review: 88/ 100 An elegant white, pale golden yellow, with aromas of wildflowers and pear. On the palate, pear with sage and refreshing mint, with a touch of minerality. Long, mineral and herbal finish. Remarkable value at $12.95!
