2014 DaVinci Pinot Grigio

DaVinci-Pinot-GrigioNestled near the Tuscan hillside town of Vinci – historic home of Leonardo da Vinci – Cantine Leonardo Da Vinci brings together 200 passionate local winegrowers, who contribute their finest grapes to an extraordinary collection of authentic Italian wines. Rooted in centuries of winemaking tradition, Da Vinci wines embody the rolling hills of Tuscany. Cantine Leonardo Da Vinci works closely with growers in the delle Venezie IGT to create Pinot Grigio from Northeast Italy.

From the Wine Maker – “Our Da Vinci delle Venezie Pinot Grigio has a brilliant straw color and delicate floral aromas. The palate is full and ripe, characterized by notes of apple, tropical and citrus fruits, and a hint of minerality. Lively acidity and a fresh, crisp profile make this a wonderfully versatile white wine.”

The wine is delicious paired with delicately boiled white fish or fish prepared in light sauces, such as lemon butter. Raw, crisp or steamed vegetable dishes.

2011 Altadonna Pinot Grigio

The area referred to as the “Tre Venezie” encompasses a vast territory in northern Italy, including part of the Trentino region, as well as the entirety of the Veneto and the Friuli-Venezia Giulia regions. Protected to the north by the Alps, the area is well-ventilated by the warm, gentle breezes off the Adriatic Sea. Pinot Grigio thrives in this unique terrain. Italian white-wine making was revolutionized in this region through cold fermentation, the selection of yeasts, and densely planted vineyards.

From the Wine Maker – “Abundant aromas of white peaches and ripe grapefruit make up the bouquet. This is a vibrant wine with a crisp, refreshing acidity and mineral notes that balance the ample body and texture.”

This Pinot Grigio makes an excellent aperitif wine. It pairs well with vegetable hors d’oeuvres and other lighter fare, including salads.

Today, Maso Canali is the culmination of dedicated winegrowers and artisans who use a unique winemaking method to craft a Pinot Grigio of extraordinary depth and flavor. The fruit from this vineyard is so exclusive, it is believed that centuries ago armed guards watched over the vines day and night.

From the winemaker – “Our Maso Canali Pinot Grigio displays a brilliant pale golden color indicative of its crisp, citrus aromas and floral notes. Ripe nectarine and light citrus flavors are enhanced by a rich mouthfeel that is achieved from drying our grapes on racks.”

2011 BackHouse Pinot Grigio

back-house-pinot-grigioIn 1994, Roy and Rachael Cecchetti purchased a two and a half-acre parcel in the Sonoma Valley, one mile east of the Plaza. On that parcel, situated next to the grand willow tree and the natural spring fed pond, was an old backhouse. Through some research of the property, it was discovered that the old backhouse was once home to vintners, writers, artists and those who craved the solitude and enjoyment of nature. Backhouse wines were created to bring these memories back to life for a new generation.

From the Wine Maker – “pale straw in color with complex flavors of fruits and herbs. Round and full, this wine can be enjoyed with a variety of foods such as salads and poultry dishes.”

Try with Shellfish like scallops, clams, mussels or raw oysters.  Also shrimp with any Thai or spicy Asian sauces.
