Albino Armani Vigneto Corvara 2009
400 years among grapevines is the equivalence of infinite passion for winemaking. In the Adige Valley the history of the Armani family and that of winegrowing seem to develop together. It all began on December 7, 1607, when Domenico Armani signed the deed for lands with "trees and grapevines", which previously belonged to his father Simone Armani.
A very nice single vineyard Pinot Grigio with great flavor and a hint of a richness bereft in most Italian Pinot Grigios. Well balanced, not overly acidic.
Melon and lemon peel aromas. Palate is fresh and refreshing, with loads of citrus flavors and a clean finish with more melon.
Sweet lemon nose. Perfectly balanced acidity with round mellow tropical fruits. A slight complex animal edge that makes this a pretty fun wine.
This does that special Pinot Grigio trick of somehow getting sunshine right into the bottle. The nose is just lovely: white linen and pale lemons, a breeze from the next grove over. The rest is subdued tropical fruit and a hint of soft peach, all layered over a well-balanced wash of acidity.
