Reviews and Ratings

Shelley Harris rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Full aroma of sweet fruits with a faint lemon/lime which all carry over to its taste. I served this wine with a mild Indian Korma chicken curry, a mild creamy curry enhanced with raisins, almonds and coconut milk.
Martha Kelly AIWS - CS rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Light-bodied and refreshing this Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie has flavours and aromas of ripe peach and apple with a hint of citrus pith on the medium length finish.
Pair with butter chicken or Pad Thai.
Drink now or keep until 2016.
Date tasted: November 2014.
Astrid Young - Sommelier ISG CAPS rated this wine as 86/100 with the following review:

Warm stewed melon greets the nose, simple palate of cooked pear and just a hint of smokiness. Pleasant medium finish lifts some citrus notes into the mix, love this wine with all kinds of cheeses, cheddars especially.
Community Reviewer reviewed this wine as follows:

bouquet of exotic pineapple and touch of faint strawberries. Full of fresh fruit character and well-balanced.

This classic Italian Pinot Grigio clocks in at a great price. The vineyards are located in the northeastern region of Italy. Lots of bright citrus notes, especially lime and lemon.
