TALES FROM A TASTING
This bottle of Gradis’ciutta Collio Pinot Grigio deserves a spotlight. Pinot Grigio is the second most popular white wine in our good old U.S. of A. That popularity means there are an overwhelming amount of Pinot Grigio options. It can be difficult to pluck a good one from all of the similarly straw-colored wines lining liquor store shelves.
Well, we’ve found a winner, of course only through the discriminating tastes of Post Road Liquors in Wayland, MA. When they told us this was their new favorite Pinot Grigio, we should have known we were getting into something good!
Upon the very first sip, we tasted bright apple flavors, and then a welcomed balanced freshness. Part of that balance is what is so great about the Gradis’ciutta Collio Pinot Grigio; not only is it an exceptional aperitif, but it is also an excellent dinner wine.
With that first sip, I immediately brought that bottle out to the pool to enjoy basking in the warm weather. The Gradis’ciutta Collio Pinot Grigio would enhance any summer evening – either relaxing alone or enjoying a little bit of laughter with a friend.
Don’t forget, besides being a great sipping wine, this Pinot Grigio also holds its own at dinner. I thought of the usual fish pairing, but I had several gorgeous chicken drumsticks, just begging to be cooked. You have to try my recipe for creamy parmesan pancetta drumsticks. They melt in your mouth! And pairing with the Gradis’ciutta Collio Pinot Grigio? Bellisimo! Head into Post Road Liquors, grab a bottle, and try it for yourself! 😉
