Tasting- Tonnino Pinot Grigio

Tonnino-Pinot-Grigio

Name: Tonnino Pinot Grigio

Variety: Pinot Grigio

Region: Sicily

Country: Italy

Year: 2014

Price: $14

Shop Notes: Tonnino’s exotic example of Pinot Grigio has a straw to pale gold color. It is fresh and clean on the nose with fruity notes of pear, green apple and white peaches. The palate is true to the nose with a fresh acidity, coriander and lime notes followed by a crisp finish. This wine pairs well with youthful aperitifs, clams or mussels, pastas and risotto dishes.

My Notes: The nose had an apple/pear aspect to it and was very open but not too strong. I could also detect these types of fruits in the body but thought the acidity overshadowed some of the flavors.

I did not have this with food.
