Ronco dei Pini 2006 Collio Pinot Grigio ($16.00)
Clear, rather rich straw color with a touch of bronze. Complex aromas blend apples, limes and a musky whiff of ripe melon. Mouth-filling and quenching, dry and tart, a distinct minerally note playing counterpoint to fresh, snappy citrus on the palate. Tart lime lingers in a long finish. US Importer: John Given Wines Co., Manhasset, N.Y. (Jun 1, 2008)

FOOD MATCH: Would go well with mild white fish or chicken dishes; it was fine with a simple omelet filled with earthy Gruyère cheese, which worked especially well with the musky notes of the Pinot Grigio.



Wine notes in 'shelf-hanger' format:
We publish Wine Lovers' Page tasting reports in the familiar "shelf-hanger" size and format, to make it easy for wine merchants or collectors to print them out, clip and post them where this wine is displayed. We do ask, however, that the name, logo and URL be left intact, and that these reports be used with the specific wines rated, not different bottlings or vintages.

Our tasting policy:
All my wine-tasting reports are consumer-oriented. In order to maintain objectivity and avoid conflicts of interest, I accept no free samples from wineries or distributors, purchasing all the wines I rate at my own expense in retail stores.
