2011 Azienda Agricola Fugatti Pinot Grigio

 

Azienda Agricola Fugatti is a small winery in the Veneto region of Italy. They produce white, rosé and sparkling wines – all of them are certified as organic.

Their 2011 Pino Grigio is made with 100% Pino Grigio grapes. Aging is done in large stainless steel tanks. The wine has an alcohol by volume of 12.5%. Prior to drinking the wine was chilled.

This Pinot Grigio has a  pale yellow-ish color. The bouquet had aromas of pineapple, lime,wild herbs and flowers. I was surprised by the large variety of aromas that I found here.

On the palate the wine tasted very different then what it smelled like! I tasted a lot wild-flower honey! The wine was still very fruity with some tingling acidity. Fugatti’s Pinot Grigio has a medium-long finish. It goes well with seafood and light appetizers.

A bottle of the 2011 Pinot Grigio from Fugatti retails for 10.90€. Since I often enjoy wines made with the Pinot Grigio grape I might be a bit biased but I believe it’s a good buy! I certainly enjoyed it! You can find a review of the 2010 vintage here. Very similar and both recommended but the 2011 vintage I liked more.

    to tell you the truth, I generally avoid Pinot Grigio, outside may be Alto Adige wines or made by Livio Felluga and the likes. Few months ago I tried probably my best ever Pinot Grigio – Sant’Elena Pinot Grigio, which was a so called “orange wine” – it was delicious…

    I just got an email notification for this as well… And I agree with Anatoli, I avoid Pinot Grigio, but unlike him, I have yet to find one that I like! I also think the first comment is likely spam…

      Sorry that you got the notification for this old post. I ‘m trying to find out why the system has sent out an email for this post.

      I don’t know if the post is spam. Aksiment is really good at catching spam and the Robert seems to have a legit e-mail (I checked it in the comment section). His post is over a month old though.
