Food Pairings for Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio IGT
Actually, 3.5+ stars. Color, this wine has a clean light nice color. Nose, I am picking some grassiness, apricot, green apple, lemon. It is very bright. Midpalate, clean, crisp, has little complexity, light. Finish, smooth, refreshing, clean, not really long but is ok, balanced. This is a decent and soled bottle of pinot grigio. I am 89+ on this effort. Bottled at 12.5%. Happy drinking!
External Reviews for Tiefenbrunner Pinot Grigio IGT
Tiefenbrunner is an old reliable when it comes to Pinot Grigio, and its 2000 is no exception. Pear and citrus are the flavors. The palate is well balanced and the mouthfeel round and smooth. Vibrant acidity accentuates the long, fruity finish.
Despite the Germanic name of the producer, this is a northeastern Italian wine, showing a clear pale-gold color and appetizing grapefruit-like aroma that adds attractive white flower (acacia) notes as it warms in the glass. Fresh, fruity, and tartly cleansing, it offers ripe mixed citrus flavors and tangy acidity that lingers in a long finish.
Dried peaches, with hints of almond and mineral. Medium-bodied, with an oily texture and lots of flavor and freshness. Very good value and real Pinot Grigio character. Drink now.
Cider apple and pear scents fill this simple, grapey pinot grigio. It's clean and straightforward. For the cocktail hour.
From this important producer of quality wines from northeastern Italy comes a pinot grigio that is clean and fresh, with bright, crisp fruit and a palate of flavors with more dimension than many from this varietal. It finishes with zesty acidity and an appealing hint of bitter almond.
Gorgeous example of the successful integration of fruit and mineral tones. Peach and green melon seem accented by lemon zest or lime. Elegant but structured in the mouth.
This fresh, medium-bodied white has a good backbone of mineral flavors, and a nice acidity that lasts through the finish.
