A terrific Italian Pinot Grigio that's zesty and crisp. Mouth-watering aromas of lemongrass and grapefruit. The Bolla Pinot Grigio will drink well as a chilled aperitif or pair with seafood.

Reviews and Ratings

Emilie Ryan rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:

A flavourful Pinot Grigio.…
Presentation: An eclectic, busy label, although it has relatively little text compared to some other labels thanks to its six different fonts
Appearance: Pale gold
Nose: Medium nose with notes of tropical fruit (lychee), wet stone, white flowers and honey
Taste: Dry, full body, high acidity, low tannins, and viscous, with notes of chalk, lemon rind, bitter almond
Finish: long, bitter almond finish
Overall impression: A more viscous, flavourful version of a Pinot Grigio. At the same time, it offers a nice representation of the varietal and would pair nicely with an array of dishes, such as cheese, salad, grilled vegetables, and cream pastas.
Value: 4/5
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier reviewed this wine as follows:

Light, fruity and crowd pleasing. Stonefruit, citrus zest and hints of saline minerality. Enjoy as a patio sipper.

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
