A lovely pinot grigio with pear, apple-skin, some crushed-stone and lemon undertones. It’s full-bodied and very flavorful. Real pinot grigio. Drink and enjoy., March, 2021

It’s all about sharpness and focus here, the exact qualities you look for in wines from this altitude and the reflective light of the snow-capped Italian Dolomites. The San Michele Appiano 2019 Alto Adige Pinot Grigio is indeed luminous and bright, with lasting zest and appeal. The variety performs with almost spicy intensity, showing grapefruit, crushed stone and bitter almond. Try this versatile white with fried zucchini and shrimp with salt and lemon juice. 2020 – 2022
