2012 Ronco Blanchis Pinot Grigio Collio
Hints of walnut and sous-bois underscore notes of dried apricot, lemon preserves and yellow apple, all backed by well-cut acidity. (Web-2014)
Sitting in the northeastern corner of Italy on the border of Slovenia, Collio has an ancient winegrowing history and remains an important DOC zone for quality white wines. Here the Palla family, led by patriarch Giancarlo, produces distinctive wines from these Friulian lands. Densely planted vines produce a terroir-driven Pinot Grigio, which features a flinty profile with notes of pear and fine minerals.
