A highly quaffable find from Aldi, the Villanella Pinot Grigio.
The Villanella Pinot Grigio is available exclusively at Aldi and sells for just $8.99. It is imported by Villanella Wines.
This premium Pinot Grigio is sourced from the Valdadige area of Italy in the Tre-Venezie growing region. The high elevation micro-climate produces the best Pinot Grigio grapes in Italy. This dry, medium-bodied Pinot Grigio displays floral aromas and flavors of pear and golden delicious apple with bright acidity and a touch of mineral on the finish. Enjoy with fish, chicken, pork, pasta with cream sauce, mild cheeses, or simply on its own. Best when served chilled.
The 2017 Villanella Pinot Grigio begins with a pleasing aroma of peaches, melons and a little bit of stony minerality. Taking a sip reveals a delicious and highly quaffable light-bodied wine which features lots of acidity and a smooth, lively mouthfeel. It's fairly straight forward stuff but done quite well. You'll also find lots of green apple, more melon and peach flavors with the fruit turning a touch tropical on the dry, fresh and satisfying finish.
