Mandoleto Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie DOC 2020 (Veneto, Italy) "...white stone fruit, rockmelon, lemon zest..."
Bargain Italian Pinot Grigio is hard to find with the cheaper versions often having little or no flavour – you may as well be drinking water. So this is a real find as it has plenty of power. It opens up with classic pear and citrus fruits with a nice touch of nutty complexity that provides a little Italian personality. It is then dry and tangy, with long and generous fruit plus a slightly creamy texture which gives this wine some serious food matching versatility. Sure, it will match up with antipasto but also has the weight for spaghetti marinara.
