Ruffino Pinot Grigio Lumina 2010

The summer pinot parade continued today with the 2010 Ruffino offering…not really the best.  Don’t misunderstand–it wasn’t awful either, but rather a middle-of-the-pack wine.  It was a value buy on our part, and we’ll hopefully encounter better grapes and vintages in the future.  The folks at Ruffino packed a powerful whiff of pear and floral fragrances into this little bottle, and we did drink it down with big smiles on our faces.   Here’s a little something from the winemaker:

Crisp, aromatic and full of body.  Lumina is a versatile match with food.  Serve as an apertif or with dishes such as soft shell crabs, grilled fish, pasta primavera, and roasted chicken.  Lumina also pairs well with ethnic dishes such as Mexican enchiladas, Greek dolmas, and Thai green curries.
