Tastes like: This Pinot Grigio is well balanced, fresh and flavourful. Hints of some riper peachy fruit and wildflower scent, with a honeyed and waxy note to the aromas as well. It is medium-light bodied, lively and a touch sour-edged, with some grapefruit/lemon bitterness. The length is very good.
Pairs with: An excellent aperitif white wine and a great choice for parties because it matches beautifully with a wide range of appetizers, especially fried calamari, turkey breast, grilled chicken, clams and crab.
Good for: When I sip, you sip, we sip! An excellent sipping wine.
Why we're drinking this
In Trentino, the difference between daytime and nighttime temperatures helps create wines that are remarkably fresh and robust in aroma and flavor. Production begins with an immediate pressing of the fruit followed by cold settling. Vinification is carried out at low temperatures in stainless steel tanks to preserve the fresh varietal character of the fruit. This is a Pinot Grigio that shows strong varietal character and solid value.
Bollini Pinot Grigio is styled to show intense varietal aromas with an especially fragrant bouquet and elegant, delicately focused white fruit flavors. The texture is crisp and clean in the mouth, with superb acid balance. Very good length. The palate has a good depth of flavour with ripe apple pear fruit with a buttery texture and mineral balance.
