Bottega Vinaia Trentino Pinot Grigio 2012

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Light and crisp on the nose with yellow pollen floral tones and gentle apple fruit, with a hint of waxy incense. In the mouth, this is fairly rich but restrained. There’s nice depth of fruit, all in the golden apple and pear end of the spectrum, with a touch of hay-like complexity. This is a bit firm and shows an elegant side to Pinot Grigio that is hard to find. Crisp and very pretty, though it does show some heat on the finish. 88pts

Straw bright, aromas of yellow tree fruits and beeswax; elegant flavor notes of bright lemon curd, yellow apple and citrus, racing to a moderately long, clean finish.

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!!

    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.

    Estate-bottled Bottega Vinaia is the outcome of a vision by lead winemaker Anselmo Martini at the widely recognized Cavit winery. Starting in the early 1990s, Martini sought to explore the optimum potential of a handful of extraordinary vineyards in northern Italy’s 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 Anselmo Martini’s passion and tireless drive, Bottega Vinaia has swiftly joined the ranks of Italy’s top-notch premium wine producers. Grapes are sourced from a tiny cluster of vineyards located 1200-1800 feet 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 Grigio.

    Winemaker's Notes - Fresh, dry and flavorful with a firm structure leading into a lingering finish, it displays character and finesse.

    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.

    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.
