A delicious porch dinner included this 2011 Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio, probably our favorite white and the one to which all others are (at least presently) compared. Candle? Check. Ambiance? Check. Great company? Got that too. Our meal consisted of a couple of swordfish steaks, grilled to perfection, and some delicious garlic mashed potatoes and grilled asparagus with burnt butter and lemon sauce. Combined with the Santa Margherita, it all made for a great evening on the patio.
Here’s what the winemaker offers in terms of notes: “Santa Margherita Pinot Grigio is the benchmark by which all other Pinot Grigios are judged. The wine boasts a fresh, clean fragrance that is followed by a crisp, refreshing flavor with hints of citrus fruits. This wine is well-structured and sophisticated, a perfect choice for entertaining!”
This night, it entertained us.
