As the sultry summer slugs slowly onward, we decided preventative medicine would include a white wine along with our dinner tonight. We had an amazing meal (pictured below) of Italian turkey sausage, spiral pasta, and a warm vegetable salad that included organic rainbow chard, mushrooms, zucchini, and garlic. Our ongoing pinot parade required the performance of the DaVinci Pinot Grigio, on this occasion the 2010.
As I understand it, this light white originates from the Trentino-Alto Adige region of Italy. Here’s what the big shots have to say about this vino:
DaVinci Pinot Grigio has a brilliant light straw color and a full, ripe palate. It is an extremely well-balanced wine with a bouquet of floral aromas coupled with ripe flavors of fresh apple, citrus, and tropical fruit flavors. This crisp, clean Pinot Grigio finishes with notes of minerals and a vibrant acidity.
I concur with this assessment and would be back for more.
