"A denser style of pinot grigio blend with plenty of dried lemon and apple character. Medium body, pretty fruit and a fresh finish. Lightly chewy. Drink now."
This stunning white from Maculan is an example of some of the simply incredible values you can find from Italy when you look for wines other than Pinot Grigio!
Now ... to be fair - there is a bit of Pinot Grigio in the blend here, along with Pinot Bianco (the dominant varietal here is Tai) but the point we are trying to show here is that there is so much more to white wine in Italy!
This wine would compete with other $20 white wines ... but comes in at $7.99 per bottle. It's ultra refreshing, clean and crisp and it delivers way more than its price point would suggest. Yes, this wine earned an outstanding 90 Point score but the reality is, this is a great value each and every vintage!
