Here’s a great pick if you’re looking for an easy going, affordable summer wine to stock up on and enjoy all summer long.
Italy is a really good place to look for Pinot Grigio, as we’ve written about before, and this bottle is a perfect example of the favorable quality to price ratio you can find.
Costco’s price is $6.89, which looks to be on the lower end of what I could find the wine selling for online; a few outlets sold it as high as $12. It’s a Sicilian wine made with organic grapes that benefit from the ideal Mediterranean climate.
In the glass, the wine pours a pale gold; there’s nice citrus fruit aromas on the nose; the wine is medium in body and packed with flavor, mostly green apple, pear and peach; good acidity, crisp in the finish.
This is a perfect summer wine especially if you’re heading to the pool or beach, and also a wine you could pair with light summer food including appetizers, salads or fish.
I think if you walked into Costco right now with $30 looking to score some summer wines, you’d do great choosing two bottles of this Pinot Grigio, and two bottles of the just released Kirkland Prosecco Rosé. Bring on summer.
