2021 Venica & Venica Jesera Pinot Grigio Collio Friuli-Venezia Giulia Italy
Brilliant coppery, which is the natural color obtained from this grape with a short maceration on the skins. The hue varies according to the vintage; this year is particularly intense. Intriguing bouquet that ranges from mimosa to jasmine, acacia, ginger, pink pepper, pear and rennet apple, all wrapped in a frame of citrus and mineral nuances. Lively and savory mouth, consistently reminding the nose aromas, for a refreshing, juicy, intense and tasty sip, creamy but rightly acidic. Long and vibrant finish. The structure is good, with a very slight tannin deriving from the peel. Overall, this wine maximizes the typical bouquet and juiciness of the grape.
Pair with appetizers and canapés, especially ham, light soups, grilled fish and white meats. Excellent with risotto, for example with spring vegetables. Try it with a nice sea bass with strawberries and mint.
