Don’t let its light color fool you into thinking that this 2022 Italo Cescon, Pinot Grigio is one of those light, watery PGs

Tasting Notes:

Pours a light straw color.  Very elegant in the mouth with ripe passionfruit and gooseberry notes.  Nice minerality with flavors of pear, lemon, pineapple, stone, honey and almond in its delicious bright lingering finish. Delicious and immensely drinkable. Would pair well with fish, shellfish, vegetarian and hard cheeses.  And with an ABV of just 12.5%, you can have an extra glass and not need a nap.
