2008 Esperto, Pinot Grigio, Delle Venezie, Italy

Terry post:

Summer Wine Series

We carried the Esperto Pinot Grigio at Restaurant 213 from the grand opening onward and it is still on the wine list today. It has been a steady seller popular with those who prefer a dry white wine with floral characteristics.

My impressions: Pale, diluted straw-color in the glass. Faint floral note when first poured opening slightly to citrus as the wine warmed. Moderate bodied and dry. Not nearly as fruity as I have experienced with other Italian Pinot Grigios - more American in style. Recommended.

Good acidity. Food friendly. I paired the wine with a Watermelon-Feta Cheese salad - and it was perfection.

Imported by Moet Hennessy USA. 13% alcohol.

$13 at retail.
