Gaetano d'Aquino Pinot Grigio delle Venezie, 2013

We opened this bottle the night before the guests arrived for Christmas, then re-corked what was left. For the next week, it was hidden and forgotten at the back of the fridge behind Christmas leftovers. A re-corked half bottle more than a week old? I assumed it would be oxidized and undrinkable, but no. Still fresh and lively. Grapefruit tartness balanced against peachy ripeness. Quite enjoyable.

At $3+ a bottle at Trader Joe's, this has to be one of the world's best wine values. We buy a few bottles every time we visit a TJ store; the 2013 vintage is the best we have encountered.
