From Italy's beautiful Trentino D.O.C., a delightful Pinot Grigio with aromatic tree fruit, bright citrus and herbal notes. Pair with seafood.

Melanie Lloyd - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This bright yellow Pinot Grigio is like looking at sunshine in a glass. It has ripe juicy peach and orchard fruit aromas, as well as pineapple, citrus, cantaloupe and honey.

On the palate, it is refreshing and zesty with lemon and crisp green apple flavours. Pair with fried calamari or with seafood apps.

Tasted January 2018
from the Trentino wine region Mezzacorona Cliffhanger 2016 is a dry, bright Pinot Grigio with lightly-herbed and crunch apple flavours. Very lean and will cut through any rich creamy pasta dish. - Community Wine Reviews
