Wine review: Bollini Pinot Grigio 2012, Italy Add to ...

  • Rating 88
  • Year 2012
  • Region Trentino
  • Varietal Pinot grigio
  • Price $16.95

Bollini, ever the reliable mid-priced pinot grigio producer, turned out a fine effort in 2012. Medium-bodied, this offers relatively smooth, almost buttery texture for an Italian grigio. That’s likely owing to a brief aging period on the lees, or spent yeast cells, which tends to contribute substantial texture. Spiced-pear and apple flavours culminate in a fresh finish; $18.99 in B.C., various prices in Alberta.
