Gaetano d'Aquino Pinot Grigio delle Venezie, 2008

Unless you live in California and can buy Two Buck Chuck for two bucks, this Pinot Grigio is one of the least expensive wines going. It sells for $3.99 at Trader Joe's, and, for my money, it's much better than any of the Charles Shaw (Two Buck Chuck) wines sold there.

As usual, it's a light straw color and characterized by fresh fruity/herbal aromas and flavors. As the label suggests, the finish has a slightly bitter edge that makes the wine very drinkable. It reminds me of a young Mezza Corona, but at about half the price.
