Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio
So it’s been quite a while since my last post as the month of June has been quite a busy one. However, it has not kept me from discovering some great wine. The summer finally arrived a few days ago, and that means it’s time to find some wine to pair with it. I recently found an excellent Pinot Grigio produced by Mezzacorona. This wine was
very refreshing and flavorful, and I gotta say will definitely be an excellent wine for warm weather. Mezzacorona is located in Northern Italy at the base of the Dolomite mountains, and is the largest estate producer of Pinot Grigio in Italy. Along with their Pinot Grigio, the wine list includes varietals such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Moscato and Teroldego among others. Their website also has some amazing photos of their vineyards and of the Dolomites that make me think that a trip to Mezzacorona is definitely in order! This 2010 Pinot Grigio had a light pale straw color with a nose of fresh citrus. The first sip led to a very refreshing taste of honey and citrus, with a slight hint of sweetness, along with a very smooth finish. I thought that this was an excellent glass of wine, and it paired quite nicely with the salmon I had with it. Along with pairing with great food, I think that this would be a perfect glass to relax with on a hot summer day. So if you are in search of a fantastic Pinot Grigio, I would definitely suggest Mezzacorona.
