Vintage tasted 2009 Grapes Pinot Grigio

Overview This is Ruffino’s first Pinot Grigio and its first wine produced outside Tuscany—more evidence of Ruffino’s solidification as an international powerhouse. This wine is a nice addition to the ever-expanding portfolio. It’s light and refreshing, and it has been selling nearly a million bottles a year in the few years it’s been produced. Sometimes the masses are right.

Nose As one might expect from a Pinot Grigio, it’s faint and subtly floral.

Mouth Simple and tart, it has a refreshing, chalky aspect that our blind tasters enjoyed.
