This nicely structured Pinot Grigio shows a "ramato" or copper color and slightly oxidized aromas of butterscotch, bitter almond and ripe melon. The structure is bigger and more defined than a standard Italian white.
Don't be put off by this wine's slightly coppery hue--it's from a short length of skin contact. Aromas of Red Delicious apples ease into flavors of fresh apples sprinkled with dried spices like cinnamon and clove. Medium-bodied, with a finish that shows hints of appleskin and some phenolic notes.
Round and waxy on the nose, with an oily note alongside minerality and apple. Quite toasty and baked on the palate, with applesauce, grapefruit and stone-fruit flavors. Very dry and long on the tail, with soda-cracker flavors. Ultra textured. Imported by Empson (USA) Ltd.
A copperish colored wine with opulent yellow fruit notes and a subtle toastiness render a unique nose and give the wine a distinct personality. Good consistency and finish. Imported by Villa Italia.
