Bottega Vinaia Pinot Grigio Trentino 2009
Pale straw, warm aromas of nectarines and summer flowers, palate notes of yellow apples, yellow stone fruits with a kiss of citrus, framed by integrated acidity with weighty mouthfeel lingering to a lengthy finish.
Sorry to say this is the last bottle from the case I purchased a year ago. Hoping I like the newer vintage. This is a delicious and refreshing Pinot Grigio from the northern Italian region of Trentino. Daybright yellow in color and clear. Wonderful aromas of citrus, lemon peel, melon, and floral. Medium weight in body, soft, with a slight oiliness. Bright flavors of lemon, fresh melon, pineapple, and a hint of honeysuckle. A second sip showed more tropical fruit, ripe peach, and mineral notes. A nice acidity leads to a long, mouthwatering finish! This Pinot Grigio would pair perfectly with roasted chicken, fresh green salad, pasta with a white cream sauce, fish, and medium cheeses. I really enjoyed this Pinot Grigio and if you have a 2009 vintage, I recommend to drink it before 2014. It is excellent right now! WineSplashing!!
External Reviews for Bottega Vinaia Pinot Grigio Trentino
Markedly more intense and flavorful than a typical Pinot Grigio, the Vinaia might be called a ldquo;Chardonnay loverrsquo;srdquo; white. Crunchy acidity, medium-bodied, creamy texture, and full, ripe peach and citrus notes lend this wine uncommon weight and considerably more flavor interest than most.
Smooth, silky and suggestively redolent of banana, yellow fruit and white stone. Therersquo;s a unique roundness or velvetiness to this wine, but also fruity freshness and playful youthfulness. Very food friendly.
Cavitrsquo;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 mdash; loads of honey. In the mouth, it is lean and fresh with perky spice on the finish.
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.
A distinct step up from many Pinot Grigios, with floral and herbal nuances layered over a fresh-fruit core of peaches, pears and white-fleshed melons. Tangerine and anise notes give a lift to the finish.
Pretty and intense floral nose,. Fresh and crisp in the mouth, with excellent structure and a dry finish. Great with a salad or seafood.
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.
