Not a typically fruity Grigio, this one relies more on spices and minerals to make a palate impression. Hints of almond and dried cinnamon start things off, followed by stony, mineral flavors backed by pears and allspice.
With aromas of pickles and bath soap, the nose is volatile and astringent. The mouth is sharp, with nebulous black fruit. This is a wine that is sitting precariously on the cusp of acceptability. Some size and mouthfeel is all that saves it.
