La Cadalora 2006 Pinot Grigio Vallagarina ($17.00)
Clear straw color. Fresh and complex white fruit, honeydew melon and lemon curd, with a subtle earthy back note reminiscent of fresh porcini mushrooms. Good fresh citrus notes in a tart, medium-bodied flavor, crisp and clean in a very long finish. US Importer: Vintner Select of Mason, Ohio, and other regional importers; a Marc de Grazia selection. (Jun 16, 2008)

FOOD MATCH: A fine match with a simple thick natural pork chop.



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.
