2006 Lis Neris Pinot Grigio (Previously $19.99)

SKU #1034287

2 Glasses Gambero Rosso. Grown in the town of San Lorenzo in Isonzo, Friuli up against the Slvoenian Border. This 100% pinot grigio was fermented in stainless steel and matured on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks for six months. Complex and leesy, with herbal notes and tremendous length, this is not a wimpy, neutral Pinot Grigio. 89 points Wine Enthusiast: "Lis Neris is a quality-minded producer in northeast Italy with a thick portfolio of delicious white wines. Among them is this crisp Pinot Grigio with immediate aromas of exotic fruit, peach and nectarine. The wine's creamy density makes it an excellent companion to pasta or rice salad." (03/09)

Additional Information:

Varietal:

Pinot Gris

- Also known as Pinot Gris in France, where it originated as a mutation of Pinot Noir. The berries can vary in color from yellowish to bluish-violet producing wines that range from white to slightly pink. The most successful wines from the grape come from the Collio in Friuli (Northeast Italy), where the wines are light- to medium-bodied, crisp, dry and, because of their high acidity, complementary to the region's foods like speck, Prosciutto di San Daniele and polenta. In Alsace, where the grape takes a back seat to more popular varietals like Gewürztraminer and Riesling, it is generally rich and honeyed. Other successful plantings of Pinot Grigio exist in Austria, Germany, Hungary and Romania, with even smaller amounts planted in British Columbia, Australia, New Zealand and California.

The 1980s showed incredible efforts and a lot of experimentation. The 1990s marked the real jump in consistent quality, including excellence in many Region that had been indistinct for ages.
