Masi Masianco Pinot Grigio/Verduzzo wine review by (PB)
This wine was sent to the WCB free of charge for review.
Crystalline straw hue with lovely fruit aromas rising from the glass.
Bouquet is full of lovely fruit aromas with bananas and vanilla cream at the front with a wonderful tropical fruit melange with melon accents and loads of citrus notes. Wow!
Palate--minerals up front with citrus and juicy acid making this a great food wine. Flavors are a tad thin on opening but really grow after a few minutes. The texture of this wine is supple and carries the menagerie of tropical fruit and apples to a clean, crisp finish.
I paired this with grilled salmon and it was perfect. This wine will run you around the $15 price point. It is one of the best Pinot Grigio's I have had so raise a glass!
