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.

Kris Pinot Grigio 2017Ironically, "grigio" means "gray" in Italian, which couldn't be further from the truth in the case of KRIS, which is bursting with colorful aromas and flavors developed in high vineyards of the Veneto region. With enticing aromas of acacia flowers, lime, tangerine and hints of apricots and almonds, KRIS Pinot Grigio is bold but clean and refreshing on the palate, and offers a long finish tinged with orange blossom and honey.
