Natalie's Score: 91/100

Beautifully balanced and refreshing Italian Pinot Grigio from one of the country's best-known producers of this wine. Santa Margherita was, in fact, the first to make Pinot Grigio back in 1961, and has led the way ever since. Crisp and lively with racy acidity for seafood and shellfish. Also works on its own as a chilled aperitif.

Pinot Grigio food pairings: pasta with cream sauce, grilled chicken breast, summer salads, pork burgers, oysters on the half-shell.

Reviews and Ratings

Jon Steeves - Sommelier rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Wonderful crowd pleasing, accessibly priced Pinot Grigio from Valdadige DOC Italy. Dry, crisp and well balanced. Stone fruit, citrus notes, minerality. Pairing with white fish dishes or other seafood is as easy as pairing with crisps or hors d'œuvres. Likewise, drinking well on its own. Tasted 2016 vintage in Oct 2017. 90 points. Good value.

Caitlin Coleman rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Light and crisp with citrus, green apple and peach notes. Drink this with literally anything or just have a glass on its own.
Andrew Bernardo rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

Citrus and unripe white stone fruit drives this wine. It is soft and elegant. A perennial favourite. 89 points (www.ottawawinejournal.com)
