Reviews and Ratings

Brett rated this wine as 91/100
Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

2016 Vintage: Ruffino's Lumina Pinot Grigio is a crowd pleasing fresh and fruity unoaked wine that's perfectly suited for enjoying on a patio in the sun, or throughout the year with lighter fare such as appetizers, roasted poultry, or seared fish. From northeastern Italy, where the finest Pinot Grigio's are born, Lumina's light and crisp style is sure to please. The nose shows sweet orchard fruit, citrus, lemon meringue, and a hint of minerality. The palate is refreshing with sweet pear, yellow apple, and honeysuckle leaving a crisp and clean finish. Great value at under $14 via LCBO. Tasted September 2017. 88 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca

Apple and floral aromas and flavors with a nice kick of lemon on the palate. Crisp with nice acidity and minerality. Pair with shellfish.
Andrea Shapiro rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Pretty nice PG actually, mouth watering and fruity, fresh medium light bodied wine which encompasses yellow plums, ripe pear, super ripe pineapple, banana, golden apples and nice clean lemon citrus tones with a fresh spicy peppermint note at the end. M- body, M+ acidity. Fruity and dry.
