Di Lenardo Pinot Grigio 0.75 2021
Region: Friuli DOC Variety: Pinot Grigio Tasting notes:
The whole berries are pressed gently in a pneumatic press. After a first racking, the must is transferred to temperature-controlled fermentation still vats. The wine stayed on the lees for all of its life before bottling.
It is absolutely our best-seller. Clarification of the musts made with a new “state of the art” flowtation bio-system. Malo-lactic partially done. Bottled under vacuum.
Bouquet is very pleasant with a good array of varietal aromas such as pear Williams, banana, apricot and Acacia flowers. Taste is reminiscent of pear syrup and quince peel. Good acid balance good body and long finish. Mature wines have a bouquet of toasted almonds and straw.
Chicken is the best backup food to pair with Pinot Grigio, because of its texture and soft flavor. It’s light on the palate, and if marinated with either lemon and or white wine, it becomes a remarkable pairing.
It goes well with food items that have a soft and crisp consistency like sushi, grilled Chilean sea-bass ranks high, followed closely by pan-seared grouper, snapper, mahimahi, red fish, tilapia and flounder.
If you’re a fan of shell fish, oysters, both raw or fried, and grilled scallops are your two best bets.
Cow’s milk helps to bring out some of the sweeter flavors in Pinot Grigio (Brie, Gruyere, Mozzarella, Parmigiano Reggiano). Sheep’s milk (Gouda, Roquefort, Manchego, Fleur du Marquis, Etorki) tends to help accentuate the more earthy and mineral tones of it.
Light pasta dishes, Since this wine is fairly acidic itself, it is recommended to avoid pairing it with foods that have high acid contents, like citrus fruits or tomato-based recipes. Perfect for pairing with a medley of fresh herbs and veggie options.
