Giardano Pinot Grigio delle Venezie Rosé 2021

The classic "blush" hue (a hint of pink) in this sparkler with aromas of gentle pink grapefruit with a musty edge, a light hint of cinnamon red hot candies, and bright cherry.

Palate--Lively sparkle tingles tha palate giving a lively sensation which can only help this generally lack luster grape.  Presents with an off-dry fruitiness and a surprising hint of *structure. Is generally pleasant, with very light pear fruit. Finishes very quickly on the palate.

Prosecco, White Zinfandel and Pinot Grigio tend to be much favored wines at the local restaurant especially among the feminine gender.  This is unfortunate as they tend to be *poorly made wines overall, lacking anything worth their price especially at the routine, insanely marked up prices at restaurants. At many restaurants a single glass of one of these costs you almost as much as you can buy a bottle for at your local supermarket. But they are easy to drink, and relatively low in alcohol.  That being said I actually like this one!  It seems conscientiously vinified with an air of pride.  

I will be pairing this with my wife's homemade chicken chili soup and it will be a perfect pairing foil to the hot peppers in the soup.  At Trader Joe's for around $7 it is a definite buy again kind of wine! Raise a glass!
