Maso Canali Select Pinot Grigio 2008

Editorial Review by Gregory Dal Piaz:

This shows good tension on the nose with notes of fresh pear, a hint of strawberry, some chalky earth notes and very tight white floral tones. On entry this is very focused and precise with a small footprint in the mouth. The wine is lightly styled but fairly aromatic giving off inner mouth perfumes of crisp white fruit, chalk, and woodsy floral tones. There’s plenty of acidity but it’s very well integrated and the wine has enough flesh to conceal it without showing any fat. A nicely styled wine, elegant and with nice cut and a long, subtle quartzy finish. 89pts

A decent Pinot Grigio with a very floral taste, hints of pear and melon. Slightly acidic but is hidden very well. Refreshing but more dry than Pinot Grigio usually is. Leaves you with the impression that there was more that could have been done with this wine to improve its taste. Would recommend this to a fan of Pinot Grigio, but with the cavet that Beringer makes Pinot Grigio even better on the most part.

This bright, light-bodied sipper offers notes of spring blossom, green pear, anise and stone, with a subtle briny thread running throughout, followed by a fresh finish. Drink now.

Maso Canali Pinot Grigio has a brilliant golden color with aromas of tropical fruit and apricot. This wine is well-balanced with ripe flavors of apple and pear, leading into a clean finish.

Some fruit comes form the Canali familyrsquo;s original 17-acre Trentino vineyard that was first planted in 1893, while the rest is sourced from other vineyards in the region. The result is a wine rich in honey, vanilla, banana, acacia and almond.

Herersquo;s a very successful and aromatic Pinot Grigio from cool-climate Trentino in northern Italy. A small percentage of the grapes undergo air-drying (appassimento) for extra heft and richness on the finish. Aromas include apricot, tropical fruit and a touch of white almond.
