Let’s start at the beginning: Pinot Grigio from the Val d’Adige, which runs right through Trentino and the Alto Adige. This had been ground zero for value Pinot Grigio and all of that innocuous wine getting slurped down by desperate housewives and the like.
Much of that plonk is now made further to the south and east on comfy, flat plains where mechanical harvesting is much easier. Mezzacorona is a holdout of sorts, still producing a super value Pinot Grigio from the local fruit. It is the best at its price point. Light, fresh, easy to drink and a fitting start to anybody’s Pinot Grigio adventure.
