2010 Zenato Pinot Grigio delle Venezia 12.5% $12

Zesty on the nose with an initial rush of lime peel, a hint of mint and a dusting of gravel over slow–to-emerge apricot fruit. Really nicely balanced in the mouth with a soft, supple texture and nice gentle mineral notes adding some detail on the palate. The flavors run to the fruit cocktail end of the spectrum: pear and peach mixed with some orange are not super intense but certainly well-balanced. There’s a hint of dusty tannin here that dries the finish a bit, as well as a faint underlay of pithy bitterness, but that just adds some length and contrast. 88pts
