Masi Masianco Pinot Grigio 2008
Masi production strategy aims to emphasize the personality of each single product, while maintaining a recognisable Venetian style. Pinot Grigio delle Venezie is the most up-to-date Italian white wine. The richness of the perfumes and aromas of this grape cultivated at Castions di Strada, in the Friuli region, complements the structure of the native Verduzzo grape, deliberately picked slightly over-ripe and matured on plateaux. Masianco is a 'Supervenetian' of great personality which goes well with the typical dishes of today's cuisine: hors d'oeuvres, fish and grilled white meats. It is complex and attractive on the nose with refreshing hints of citrus fruits and apricots. Easy drinking qualities on the front palate gradually give way to greater depth; soft and full-bodied. Flavours of ripe apples and a slight touch of honey. Dry and long on the finish.
The Boscaini family have been the owners of the Masi vineyards for six generations. Sandro Boscaini is the company president. The other members of the family involved are Sandro's children: Alessandra and Raffaele, and his brothers: Bruno who looks after the production processes, and Mario who is a sleeping partner in the company.

<p>Pairs excellently with grilled fish and game animals. This wine has a nose that combines floral and fruity accents, with a refreshing finish that cleanses the palate that sparkles with tinges of tropical fruits. </p>
