  • Ziobaffa Pinot Grigio 2014

    Snoothrank:

    Insipid, acidic and NOTHING like a nice crisp Italian pinot grigio, a wine love. I bought it locally for $4 and it doesn't even rate as good cooking wine. A BIG disappointment. Read More

    Floral notes of peach and green apple on the nose with tea leaf and honeysuckle. Fresh, lively and playful on the palate, this demonstrates bold acidity and tart fruit notes of lemon and tangerine next to sweet spice and a cool pear finish. Read More
