Light, straw color. A nose of citrus and pear. Light bodied with a strong apple taste that dominates the other subtle tastes of tropical fruit, pear, and lime. Refreshing and nice with pasta not much there if your drinking it alone.

Lightly spiced and aromatic, offering hints of apricot, cantaloupe and anise. There's good tangy acidity to this, making it an easy-sipper for a hot day. Drink now.

The floral nose adds a delightful complexity to this world-class white. Fresh lemon and tart green apple flavors dominate on the palate, with a refreshing, dry finish. Serve with lemon-pepper chicken breast, Caesar salad or baked tilapia.

Pale and bright in the glass. The nose presents candied lemon, minerality and a light floral component. The palate is clean and crisp with flavors of citrus, apple, peach skin and underlying salinity. Light bodied but ripe, the acidity keeps it vibra... Elizabeth Becker.

Winemaker's Notes:

Fini and Bonmartini are the names of titled Venetian families who merged via the marriage of two Fini sisters with two Bonmartini brothers, resulting in the Barone Fini name. Records from the Republic of Venice reveal a history of family winemaking dating back to 1497. One of the top research centers for all aspects of vine-growing and winemaking is located within walking distance of the winery, the Instituto Agrario Provinciale at San Michele al Adige, established in 1847 by Emperor Franz Joseph. This superb research facility is widely used by Barone Fini winemakers to ensure outstanding Pinot Grigio and Merlot, quality vintage after vintage. Grapes for Pinot Grigio are sourced from 25 to 30 years old vines in the Trento Adige Valley. Grape picking is done manually and all blemished clusters are discarded. Selected grapes are taken to the excellent, state-of-the-art cooperative winery, where they are put through soft, cold crushing. Juice is then divided into several units, each undergoing temperature-controlled fermentation in stainless steel tanks. The result of these exacting processes is evident in the superb wines.
