Fernando Pighin & Figli Pinot Grigio 2009
Pighin Pinot Grigio del Collio is a wine which marries pronounced varietal intensity with exceptional purity of fruit. The aromatic, slightly spicy fragrance is marked by distinctive notes of acacia and hazelnuts, confirmed on the palate with elegant white fruit flavors, ending in a clean, fresh, delicate finish.
My first exploration into Northeastern Italian whites. I'm very familiar with Swiss whites, and LOVE Alsatian Pinot Gris. I found this odd. The crisp white fruits and citrus were there, but it quickly flattened on the tongue to a cedar/sandalwood note and stayed there. Not very pleasant with a simple meal based on prosciutto, boiled potatoes and hollandaise. Eager to try other makes in the region.

Peachy stone fruit flavors mark this delicately expressive wine which shows classic floral and hazelnut nuances, a clean, silky texture and a fine, crisp finish which confirms the palate. - Winery
