2014 Blason Pinot Grigio Isonzo

SKU #1226900

The 2014 Blason Pinot Grigio Isonzo has a delicate ripe nose, full of ripe pear aromatics and hints of dried herbs. On the palate you can see the weight of Pinot Grigio. It has a richer texture than a lot of other varieties and here it is expansive. The finish is clean and lasting. This is a wonderful wine to go with grilled fish and it's also an easy summer aperitivo.

A wonderful refreshing and easy to drink wine. It is light bodied, clean and crisp with beautiful subtle aromatics. It will go well alone or with lighter foods.

This Pinot Grigio from Blason [we have been importing their wines for the last fourteen years] is a lovely, distinctive wine in this 2014 vintage. Perfumed aromas of white peach and honeysuckle, with undertones of a wet river stone-like minerality that carries over to a crisp, clean, mouthwatering set of flavors. this Gem is a perfect compliment to a fish or chicken dinner. Eb has ordered me to bring home several cases of this Gem, and you might consider the same train of thought. Great Value! *****12.5% ABV *****

We have been importing Blason Pinot Grigio since the 2002 vintage....yes this is the 13th (and Lucky # in Italian) vintage and without a doubt my favorite vintage to date. Blason has always had body, depth and aromatics but this year they've got a really vibrant central acidity that amplifies the aromatics and firms up the wine. Sensational and at this price a ridiculous BARGAIN!
Drink from 2016 to 2019

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 Gew├╝rztraminer 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.
Country:

Italy

- Once named Enotria for its abundant vineyards, Italy (thanks to the ancient Greeks and Romans) has had an enormous impact on the wine world. From the shores of Italy, the Romans brought grapes and their winemaking techniques to North Africa, Spain and Portugal, Germany, France, the Danube Valley, the Middle East and even England. Modern Italy, which didn't actually exist as a country until the 1870s, once produced mainly simple, everyday wine. It wasn't until the 1970s that Italy began the change toward quality. 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. The entire Italian peninsula is seeing a winemaking revolution and is now one of the most exciting wine Region in the world. For our entire Italian wine selection, click here.
