2018 Pinot Grigio D.O.C

$45.00

‘Orsone’

Always considered the bearer of high standards for Italian white wines abroad, Pinot Grigio is approached continuously by white wine drinkers around the world, thanks to its immediate pleasantness and ease of drinking. This Pinot Grigio from Bastianich Estate is placed elegantly midway between the most dry and aromatic expressions of Pinot Grigio available on the market.

At sight a beautiful straw yellow denotes his youth, but at the same time reveals great structure. On the nose, the notes of tropical fruit and pear immediately unfurl and delight the drinker. Secondary notes of white flowers, hawthorn, tropical fruits and hazelnut integrate the aromatic spectrum of the wine.

In the mouth the soft and elegant sensations are fully reported by a very wide and deep fruit flavour, supported by excellent acidity and a drinking finish with sustained freshness and length.

A wonderful, dry and elegant expression of Pinot Grigio from Bastianich.

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

An ideal marriage for this Pinot Grigio from Bastianich would undoubtedly be the traditional pairing of seafoods; fried fish baskets, grilled calamari, and even shellfish pasta dishes.

 

For a lighter twist, try this wine with some vegetable quiche, mushroom or asparagus risotto, or crusty bruschetta of sundried tomatoes and eggplant. Cheeses and general Aperitivo fare are go-to when it comes to enjoying a bottle or two of this Pinot Grigio amongst friends. Some Sicilian green olives, aged cheeses, lighter salamis and rockmelon wrapped in prosciutto would be super tasty together with this drop.

 

Whichever context you enjoy your Pinot Grigio in, just make sure you’re chilling it to the correct temperature to really enhance its fruity and fresh profile.

The Winery

Founded in 1997, the Bastianich winery, then formed solely of the Buttrio vineyards, marked the owner’s return to their origins, and a reappropriation of their territorial identity. An immigrant in the United States as a child, Lidia, and her son Joe, born in the U. S., lived their lives and realized their careers in the United States.

 

Despite the distance and the difficulties of the global markets, the company has forged ahead, making the very high quality of its wines and their image a valuable calling card and a consistent standard-bearer in the wine world. Many, in fact, are the awards by guides, magazines and sectoral tasters.

 

Mother and son, famous for their eclectic world-view, are not just restaurateurs, television personalities and authors, but also lovers of wine and good-living in general. Their foresight has also allowed them to continually enlarge the scope of their passions and skills. The results are obvious to anyone familiar with their endeavours.

 

The Bastianich winery brand is bound to the family name, which has become synonymous with the development and realization of various projects, all of which are renowned for their quality, and their respect for culture and tradition. These endeavours are not only successful in terms of business, but also for the support and growth of their immediate neighbourhoods, their employees, and the promotion of the culture of Italian wine and food.
