di Lenardo Pinot Grigio 2017
Bouquet is very pleasant with a good array of varietal aromas such as pear Williams, banana, apricot and Acacia flowers. Taste is reminiscent of pear syrup and quince peel. Good acid balance good body and long finish. Mature wines have a bouquet of toasted almonds and straw. Food Pairing: White Meat (like Chicken, Turkey, Guinea Fowl etc.) are for sure the best backup food to pair with Pinot Grigio, because of its delicate texture and soft flavor. It will pair well quite with all the classical seafood (baked, grilled fish, a fry up, etc) but, thanks to its freshness and sapidity, it shines with delicate dish (ex. sushi, shellfish, swordfish or seabass carpaccio, etc). Cow's milk helps to bring out some of the sweeter flavors in Pinot Grigio (Brie, Gruyere, Mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano). Sheep's milk (Gouda, Roquefort, Manchego, Fleur du Marquis, Etorki) tends to help accentuate the more earthy and mineral tones of it. Light pasta dishes. Since this wine is fairly acidic itself, it is recommended to avoid pairing it with foods that have high acid contents, like citrus fruits or tomato-based recipes. Perfect for pairing with a medley of fresh herbs and veggie options.
