Matteo Braidot Pinot Grigio 2019 (Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy) "...crunchy pear, citrus rind, spice..."
The Braidot kicked off their winemaking days in the Fruili wine region of Italy in 1870! Fruli is in the Northeast portion of the country and is known for producing wines of serious quality for the price.
The Matteo Braidot is one of the best representatives of the varietal. Unlike a lot of the Pinot Grigio currently on the market that has a subdued, watery quality, the Braidot PG has the character of the grape really shine through.
"Intense straw yellow colour with coppery glints. The nose reveals notes of banana with a nice fermentation aftertaste. It is full-bodied, structured, savoury and good persistence in the mouth."
