Villa Borghetti Grigio Luna 2013


~Designed With Those Hot Days In Mind~


While I seem to be sampling quite a few New Zealand whites this summer, I can’t forget offerings from the old world.  And when you’re talking old world light whites for a summer repast, Italian Pinot Grigio is a well-known and well-regarded option.

Winemaker:  Villa Borghetti
Wine: Grigio Luna Delle Venezie
Varietal:  Pinot Grigio
Vintage:  2013
Appellation:  Venezie IGT, Italy
Price: $5.99 at Trader Joe’s

Notes:  What would you expect from an inexpensive Italian Pinot Grigio?  How about this?

Color – pale straw.
Bouquet – gentle scents of citrus and lemongrass with flinty undertones.
Acidity – good.
Body – light.
Flavors – citrus, hints of caramel, and a chalky minerality throughout.

Seems like that might be about right.
