This Pinot Grigio from one of Italy's northernmost wine-growing regions was crisp and refreshing, but not much more.
Nose: This was the best part of the wine -- fairly fragrant, with scents of pear, earthy stones, and milk.
Mouth: Light and lively, but with a fairly linear, austere flavor profile of minerals, acidity, and Granny Smith apples. Medium length finish.
Cellar or drink? This style of Italian whites is for early drinking. Bottoms up before 2009.
Price/store: About $13 at Spec's on Holcombe.
