Pizzini Pinot Grigio 2013

A tasty wine which is uncomplicated and leans itself to kicking back and relaxing. Spring time in a glass perhaps. Don't get me wrong, it's nothing to set the world on fire, but it is a decent drop which won't disappoint.

The wine is crisp with fresh pear skin and spring flower aromas. There is good fruit weight which softly rolls through. Some minerality is present and flavours of pear and sliced apple chime in rolling through to a good finish. That minerality adds to the little grip and good length offered.

To match this wine I assembled some cherry tomato and bocconcini wrapped in a small basil leaf on a toothpick drizzled in olive oil. A great match, but I could happily a couple of glasses of this on its own.

A fair wine which is well priced and readily available.
