Vintages Wine Picks July 7, 2008

White Wine

Marchesi de Frescobaldi Attems Pinot Grigio 2007, D.O.C. Friuli, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: The Attems family have an ancient lineage in the Friuli region dating back to 1106. Recently, they joined forces with another wine dynasty, Marchesi di Frescobaldi. Bright tropical fruit, pear and apple flavors, viscous texture and a crisp finish are the hallmarks of this popular Pinot Grigio. My note: A lovely, refreshing wine with bright citrus fruit, especially limes. Pair with: grilled chicken, summer salads. 707950 13% XD 750 mL  $19.95 Score: 89/100.
