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.

Color: Daybright with a faint golden hue
Nose: White truffle, minerals, honeydew melon, hints of sweet flowers like honeysuckle to balance the earthy aromatic mushroom. Some toasty notes.
Palate: Lean yet crisp, very minerally which lends a bold slatey tingle on the tongue. Tastes like dried apricot, that goes into lime zest. It finishes a little like dry vermouth at the end, kind of yeasty with some salinity.
