|Pighin Grave del Friuli Pinot Grigio 2012|
|Featured Wines - Whites|
Recommended by Dave Stefanski, Wirtz Beverage
"It was one of my first experiences with higher-end Pinot Grigio before the category got hot in the ‘90s. It’s from the cool climate of northern Italy, so it’s real crisp and refreshing with a unique flavor profile that kind of lingers for a bit."
Tasting Notes by Jessica Barger of Mason Street Grill
Friulian Pinot Grigios are very full-bodied, rich and lush on the palate as well as on the nose. They tend to have higher amounts of acidity, which is why they are heavier-bodied—making them ageable—if you can manage to keep your hands off these rather sultry Grigios. Three brothers, Luigi, Ercole and Fernando, banded together in 1963 to purchase a Royal Estate and to turn it into their vineyard. This wine is definitely a food wine—intricate aromas and flavors would be great with risotto con fungi.
