not terrible. Sour and salty with almost no fruit. Grigio is supposed to pair well with alfredo sauce which I did. i wish I hadn't. this would go well with feta or other salty cheeses.

Not very impressed with this. I suspect that I had the wine too long and it did not age well. The fruit was almost completely gone. It you still have this, I suggest you open it very soon. It will not be any better as time passes.

    Tart peach flavors warmed by spicy alcohol form the core of this clean, smooth pinot grigio. Chill it for sole or other white-fleshed fish.

    Estate-bottled BOTTEGA VINAIA is the outcome of a vision shared by Giacinto Giacomini and Anselmo Martini, managing director and lead winemaker, respectively, at the widely recognized Cavit winery. Starting in the early 1990s, Giacomini and Martini sought to explore the optimum potential of a handful of extraordinary vineyards in northern Italys Trentino region that, year after year, consistently produce the highest quality grapes. This select group of family-farmed vineyards is the source of Bottega Vinaia, an exceptional line of artisan wines that reflects the authentic qualities of the Trentino terroir. Thanks to Giacominis and Martinis passion and tireless drive, Bottega Vinaia has swiftly joined the ranks of Italys top-notch premium wine producers.Production AreaGrapes are sourced from a tiny cluster of vineyards located 400-550 meters above sea level in the Dolomite Alps north of Lake Garda. These vineyards share a microclimate and soil conditions singularly well suited to production of high quality Pinot Grigio and have been farmed by the same two families for over 100 years. In daylight hours this area enjoys the warming effects of nearby Lake Garda, helping to keep the fruit moisture-free and resistant to disease. Cool nights promote fragrant, intense aromas uncommon in Pinot GrigioGrape Varieties100% Pinot GrigioVinificationGrapes are handpicked and vinified on site. Musts are obtained from a gentle pressing, and fermentation conducted using selected yeasts at controlled temperatures of 68 to 72 F. Fining and clarification occur in stainless steel tanks, followed by stabilization and bottling in cold, sterile conditionsColorPale straw goldBouquetAlluring floral perfume of an intensity and persistence rare in a Pinot GrigioTasteFresh, dry and flavorful with a firm structure leading into a lingering finish, it displays character and finesseAlcohol12%

    Smooth, silky and suggestively redolent of banana, yellow fruit and white stone. There's a unique roundness or velvetiness to this wine, but also fruity freshness and playful youthfulness. Very food friendly.

    Cavit's Bottega Vinaia line offers an extremely likeable and creamy wine that will more than satisfy adoring fans of Italian Pinot Grigio. The layered aroma are both opulent and pristine and recall acacia flower, yellow fruit, butterscotch and honey - loads of honey. In the mouth, it is lean and fresh with perky spice on the finish.

    A landmark Italian Grigio that has set the bar for dozens of other imports, and for good reason: This wine is packed tight with pear, peach, almond skin and a touch of lemon zest. Compact and consistent in the mouth, and a great match for bouillabaisse.

    Pretty and intense floral nose,. Fresh and crisp in the mouth, with excellent structure and a dry finish. Great with a salad or seafood.
