Contadino Pinot Grigio delle Venezie, 2006

Like most Pinot Grigios delle Venezie (from the area around Venice), this wine has brisk smells and flavors featuring freshly cut herbs al la Mezza Coronoa. It also has some broader elements--apples, peaches and wax--similar to those of an Alsace Pinot Gris. This wine is not as enjoyable as Mezza Corona but considering the $3.99 price tag at Trader Joe's, it's well worth buying.

Also available for the same price at some Trader Joe's stores is a slightly sparkling version--Contadino Pinot Grigio Frizzante. I haven't tried it but have read positive reports from other wine blogs.
