Gaetano D'Aquino Pinot Grigio

Wine: Gaetano D'Aquino Pinot Grigio
Store: Trader Joe's

"This wine is ideal outside of a meal. It is delicious with hors d' oeuvres and fish dishes, particullarly lobster and crabmeat. Also an excellent companion for soups and white meats. Serve chilled at a temperature of 8°-10° C."

I was surprised when I looked back on this blog and realized I had not reviewed this wine. We've had it several times. This is a nice dry, slightly acidic wine. There are citrus hints that permeate through the flavor, leaving a slight after taste. It's rather light in color-almost clear-which is also indicative of the flavor. This wine would go particularly well with fish or lighter chicken dishes.

Rating 4 out of 5 stars
