I’ve been drinking Pizzini’s Pinot Grigio long enough to remember when it was a pink/bronze colour. They take it off skins early these days so that’s no longer the case. I will admit I do miss it. I found it rather pretty. It’s a wine that’s all about context and quite unsuited to analysis or reviews. Still, it is identifiably good Grigio.
Green pear and pear skins, apples, melon rind and sea spray. Very quiet florals. It’s actually got a bit of grip on the finish which is cool to see. It adds a little interest to a crisp wine that is all about drinking and food not thought. In some settings the wine should take a back seat. 88
