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.
