Bollini Pinot Grigio 2004 wine review by (PB)

Pinot Grigio’s are gaining in popularity and tend be a pretty nice Summer wine that goes well with a variety of snacks, cheeses and foods. They are simple wines but refreshing and quaffable at their best. (They can be dull and lifeless at their worst.) This is one of the nicer ones which is why it cost $12. You can find a bunch around $7 but you tend to get what you pay for.

This Italian white is fresh and crisp on a light straw pour. The bouquet is slightly pearish with a sweet nose and chalky aromas. This wine is made from grapes raised on the dolomite soils of Trentino.

The palate is quite full with fresh hints of citrusy flavors with minerals and solid structure to make this a good food wine.

We paired it with a seafood pasta I whipped up and sautéed green beans. It was nice all the way around. Raise a glass!
