I’ve been kinda busy latelty so I hadn’t had the time to actually write a full post. In the last days I drank quite a few good wines. One of them was a Pinot Grigio from San Michele Appiano. Pinot Grigio?! Yes Pinot Grigio. I know that Pinot Grigio is associated with low-end wines but believe me, this one is top-notch stuff!
The grapes, 100% pinot grigio, come from a single-vineyard named Anger which also gave the wine its name. The grapes aged in stainless steel. In the glass a light yellow color. Intense fruit aromas. Especially ripe pear and apple. The wine has a mineral touch and a delicate acidity. Well-balanced. Very long finish.
‘Anger’ is far from being the typical Pinot Grigio that you find at Wal-Mart for 4$. Instead, this is a modern wine that shows the beauty of this grape.
Wine goes perfectly together with seafood. I had it at an Italian restaurant together with European seabass (on the menu it said branzino and the waiter explained to me that the fish is more known as European seabass in the US.)
If you want to buy the wine you can find it online for around $15-$16. It’s worth knowing that this wine got the highest possible Gambero Rosso rating.
