2008 San Giuseppe Pinot Grigio

This Pinot Grigio from Italy's Veneto region is a very light style white wine with minimal color. It falls into the under twenty dollar category of Pinot Grigio's and has some nice packaging that helps it compete with Santa Margarita.

On the nose i get fresh lemon-lime zest, melon, acacia flower, and perhaps a touch of apple flesh. The flavors follow suit with some fresh citrus drop, lemon, melon, and just a touch of bread dough. I detect some sort of lees aging or perhaps neutral wood, but couldn't find much in the way of tech sheets for the wine to validate my suspicions.

Like I previously mentioned, this is a very light style Pinot Grigio with minimal acid and is not entirely too impressionable. It could pair well with your basic everyday leaf salad. 84 Points

Scusatemi, ma Io penso che in Veneto non ci siano piantagione di limoni. Come potete sentire l'odore/il gusto di limoni in quel Vino?

"I think that in Veneto there may not be lemon plantations. How can you feel the smell/savor lemon in that wine?"

This is a very interesting review. Maybe they took the grapes from somewhere else and just process it in Veneto?
