Vie di Romans Pinot Grigio Friuli Isonzo Dessimis 2009
Vie di Romans Pinot Grigio sources its delicious fruit from the hills of Friuli Italy. Warm weather from the Adriatic produces tropical fruit flavors and the cold nights supports the apple pear and pineapple flavors with bright refreshing acidity. This Pinot Grigio is a Gambero Rosso favorite!
The nose was exuberant with aromas of ripe peach, grapefruit, spicy floral notes, toasted cashew and brown sugar. On the palate, it was silky and rich with a hint of sweetness. Sweet peach, orange zest and spices saturated the senses with a slight bitter note toward the close. This wine made me rethink Pinot Grigio with its intense bouquet, rich presence on the palate and satisfying finish. It was like eating a perfectly ripe peach from start to finish but with all the added layers of floral and spice.
