Cantina Riff – Progetto Lageder 2016 Pinot Grigio Riff 12.5% $10
Light and lively, this refined and flavorful Pinot Grigio smells of Key Lime lime zest and tastes of cracked white peppercorns and white grapefruit. The pleasantly mouth-coating palate finishes spiffily crisp and minerally thanks to the wine’s tangy acidity. This is a fresh, character-filled and charming Italian Pinot Grigio at a surprisingly inexpensive price. This is where the know-how of the Alto Adige meets the higher quality fruit of the Veneto, and it’s a terrific wine with which to finish off the summer.
