Vintages Wine Picks July 23, 2011

White Wine

Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio 2010, D.O.C., Südtirol-Alto Adige, Italy: Vintages Wine Panel: This Pinot Grigio, from an area known for crafting serious white wines, displays a delicate bouquet with hints of pear and candied fruit. It’s dry, round (from the extended lees ageing) and medium bodied with a fresh seam of acidity that gives the wine fine balance. The ever-versatile Pinot Grigio pairs easily with all sorts of appetizers. My note: I recommend this zesty, zippy Pinot Grigio year after year. Consistently great producer with attractive white melon, grapefruit and white peach. Love it! Pair with: appetizers, asparagus dishes, seafood courses. Drink: 2011-2014. 954024 13.50% XD 750 mL  $17.95 Score: 90/100. July 23, 2011 Full Review Add to: Shopping List Cellar
