Kris Pinot Grigio Venezie IGT 2006
Garnet in color with intense perfumes of wild berries, crushed fruit and leather. The ripe fruit is well sustained by a lively acidity. This is an easy-going wine with fruity aromas that linger on the palate. Recommended with roasted meats, tomato-based pastas, sausages and cheese
KRIS is a fresh, contemporary, and artistic expression of Italian wines from the classic Delle Venezie appellation in Northeast Italy, hand-crafted to exacting standards by the one of the region’s most talented wine makers, Franz Haas.
wasnt sure what to expect out of this wine, glad i didn't expect too much. it has a strange flatness in the nose of berries that at first led straight to a fresh raspberry but soon opened up to a soft wasabi, the palate is rife with a weird souring olive co-mingling with berries; fine tannins, medium-light bodied.
Citrus and pear flavors abound. A nice wine, but nothing special. Good - 83 points.
Sweet, fruity, just like a pinot grigio should be.
Crisp floral wine with an easy finish. A solid wine to bring to someone's house as a gift or dinner wine.
I made two mistakes. I bought it in 2009 and at $11.98. It may have faded at bit in aromas and flavors, but still had the citrus and acid to produce a nice tart finish to a smooth, soft melon-citrus flavor. Not great with lemon chicken--another mistake--but quite nice alone. Well, had the rest for lunch--the right choice this time! With cold chicken and cheese and crackers, wonderfully soft, melon-citrus flavors with great mouth feel and an intense, clean finish. Very, very nice.
Delicious with a meal or by itself. MMM...
External Reviews for Kris Pinot Grigio Venezie IGT
According to the Wine Advocate: The estate s 2006 Merlot Heart is the most complex of this set of wines. This medium-bodied offering possesses attractive notes of dark fruit, smoke, earthiness, licorice, leather and the sweet herbal overtones that are typical of the wines of the Dolomites. The wine was made from a combination of purchased wine, purchased fruit and estate-grown fruit, and aged in a combination of French oak and stainless steel.
From the Alto Adige comes this lovely elegant Merlot. Enjoy its wonderful perfume of cherries and plums - a perfect expression of Love and affection.
