Pasqua Venezie Pinot Grigio Garganega, 2009

This is a $5 wine that's widely available. And with a coupon, you can get a $5 rebate on the purchase of two bottles. That's cheap, but the wine is not. It has good color and brisk acidity with hints of mint, basil, citrus and apple. At this stage of development, it reminds of MezzaCorona but maybe even more exciting on the palate. The Garganega adds a pleasantly bitter note and some complexity.

I saw a bottle of 2007 on shelf beside this one, but I went for the 2009 since we like Venezie Pinot Grigio for its vivid fruit qualities. I'll take more, please.
