Vinous Reverie Notes
Made by cult-winemaker Aleks Simcic, this Pinot Grigio would cost 40% more if made just two miles to the west. From Goriška Brda in Slovenia, this is often considered “Italia’s” best white wine cru. Simcic is himself considered by Stephen Tanzer to be perhaps the best winemaker in Eastern Europe, and his top wines sell for hundreds of Euros per bottle throughout the Old World. With hand-harvested grapes and low yields, this is a ripe, yet very clean Pinot Grigio with aromas of citrus and white flowers, and loads of mineral character on the palate. Tasting Notes: This Pinot Grigio is made from grapes hand-selected from some of the best sites along the Italian border in Slovenia. It is bright and crisp, with aromas of delicious green apple, acacia flower, and almonds.
