Giocato Pinot Grigio 2008

Member Review by lamarr:

1. 2008 Giocato Pinot Grigio - Primorska Region, Slovenia – Color: extremely pale, Nose: pear, a little sugarcane, very reserved nose, Taste: nothing very dominant, drier than most Pinot Grigios, starfruit (tart, not terribly sweet), Finish: crisp acidity, gushing mouth, but no lasting flavors Lamarr: C+ (nothing distinguishing, okay for a $10 bottle) Hector: C+ (note: opened after a while with some character, still not fantastic) Wanda: C+ (just following lock-step)

RiceSelect's fragrant Jasmati® is blended with eggs, milk and fall's favorite spices, cinnamon and nutmeg, to create a delicious rice pudding, which is layered on top of fluffy cream cheese and abuttery pecan crust. Pairs well with a bold, tawny port with flavors of dried fruits, nuts, and spices.

Very pale pinot with good flavor. A good buy and great alternative to some of the higher priced pinots out there. Good wine with spicy food. I would serve it slightly less cold than most pinots so the flavors can come through.

Nice and light, full of minerality and good acidity. Terrific value from the Fruili region on the border of Italy and Slovenia.
