  • Jermann Pinot Grigio 2011

    Snoothrank:

    A really surprisingly substantial wine...this is NOT the crisp and light Italian pinot grigio I thought I knew! This wine is has a restrained nose of pear and honey, and lots of acid and fresh tropical fruit on the palate. It is a brilliant golden straw color,and medium-full bodied. Read More

  • Bastianich Friulano 2010
