Lis Neris Pinot Grigio Friuli Isonzo Gris 2007
Alvaro's Gris vineyard is famous for the calibre and ageability of its Pinot<br/>Gris/Grigio: this heady 2007 is no exception, poised for greatness as it<br/>combines a taut toasty honeydew nose with a terrific breadth of succulent,<br/>musky, smoky flavours and creamy textures thanks to an elevage in 500 litre old<br/>french oak and plenty of lees stirring. Hang onto it if you can for up to 5<br/>yrs; a dream with fennel and pork. <br/>(David Berry Green, BBR Buyer)
