  • Pinot Grigio Collio DOC 2006

    Snoothrank:

    i'm not one for pinot grigio, unless maybe its not made in italy, but this one was nice. It has a softer light fruit nose, but the first thing i picked up on is the subtle musty, mushroom, and especially fresh bread smells. Light body as usual, easy to drink, and dry of course. Read More
