Fratelli Pighin Pinot Grigio Grave del Friuli 2016

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

Pretty aromatic on the nose with a nice blast of greengage plum, framed by saffron and gentle, dried orange peel notes over a dried apricot base. Light and feathery in the mouth, this is sheer and delicate with clear plum and green apple flavors across the palate that quickly yield to a light dried apple- and spice-toned finish. Easy to enjoy with some complexity but ultimately a lightweight wine. 86pts

: I smell stone fruit with a hint of spice and minerality. Semi-dry with prominent acidity and a citrusy undertone. Light bodied with a long crisp finish.

I smell a mix of stone fruit with subtle spice and slight minerality. Semi-dry with prominent acid and a citrusy undertone. Fairly light bodied with a moderately long and crisp 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

Wine Tasting NotesPighin Pinot Grigio is a classic example of the style which has made the wines of Grave-del-Friuli so widely appreciated. Pale straw-gold in color, with a delicate floral and white fruit aroma, it is characterized on the palate by a clean, vibrant fruit purity and superb acidic balance. The fresh, elegant finish is refreshing and subtle, marked by slight nuances of flowers and hazelnuts.

Wine Tasting NotesPighin 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.
