2018 Blason Pinot Grigio Isonzo del Friuli

SKU #1438480

Pinot Grigio is, of course, one of the classics in Italy, popular for good reason. Light, easy drinking and versatile, this wine is both inexpensive and easy to love. While inexpensive Pinot Grigio is a bit of a glutted market, if you find a small producer who is focused on quality, you can still find an excellent wine. Such is the case with Giovanni Blason, a young winemaker in Friuli who made the decision to stop selling his grapes to a large cooperative and start making wine himself. The result is fantastic. Since most Pinot Grigio on the market comes from large cooperatives blending fruit from all over the region, there is less discernable terroir, and an emphasis only on preserving simple, fruity characteristics. The 18 hectares of vines on the Blason estate in Isonzo grow in alluvial limestone soil that is also high in iron content, hence its predominantly reddish color. The growing region is at the confluence of two climate systems, that of the foothills of the Julian Alps and the nearby Adriatic Sea. This allows for white wines of fully developed flavors and aromas, but which also retain a striking mineral edge. This Pinot Grigio is vinified with some skin contact, all in stainless steel.
