90 Points

Vigneti Le Monde 2022 Pinot Grigio (Friuli). This golden Pinot Grigio wafts out of the glass with aromas of fresh apples, pressed jasmine, a hint of ginger and flint. A wine that strikes a pose on the palate with dried orchard fruits, lemon peel and peach pit with a crushed stone minerality on the dry finish.
