2011 Riondo Monte Forte Lot 6 Pinot Grigio
I’m drinking this one on a really hot day in Atlanta, and it’s probably the best setting for Pinot Grigio, which are typically not on my shopping list. But in the interest of catering to readers who might enjoy Pinot Grigio, I wanted to give it a shot. At $7.99, I can say it’s enjoyable on a hot summer day and this bottle offers just what it promises to be.
I just don’t typically pick up much flavor in Pinot Grigio, and this one isn’t much different. This wine might be a bit more on the creamy and vanilla side of things, which to me tastes a bit odd with the citrus fruit flavor that’s peaking through. But it’s drinkable, especially cold out of the fridge.
