Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio is one of the best white wine values I know. Ordinarily priced at $8.99, it is often discounted and was on sale for $6.99 for most of the summer at D&W FreshMarket in Kalamazoo. I didn't buy in quantity because, even though the wine keeps well, I like it best when it's very young. Fortunately, the wines put on sale this year were not leftovers from the warehouse but the current vintage.
The color is a medium light yellow, and the nose is vibrant with smells of fresh pear, melon, citrus, mint and basil. In the mouth, it's medium bodied with a racy acidity and a pleasingly intense finish. I drank the wine with a spicy Malaysian curry from Chin Chin in Mattawan, Michigan. It would also be good on its own or with vegetarian fare.
