Profile

Più Gioia translates to "more joy" in Italian, and trust us, that is what you will be feeling when you try this Pinot Grigio. Made in Veneto, Italy, which is one of the most famous appellations for this grape. Veneto is a unique region in the northeastern corner of Italy, with vineyards protected by the Alps from the harsh northern European climate. Although smaller than other wine producing regions in Italy - Tuscany, Sicily and Lombardy - it has slowly overtaken and now generates the most wine.

WineCollective is pleased to showcase a wine from our southern neighbour Winc, "a California-based winery offering an online membership experience". We like what they do, Winc curates hundreds of wines and broadens the palates of members across the U.S. Founded in 2012, by Xander Oxman and Geoff McFarlane who believed people should have better access to great wines. This is a rare treat for us to share an exclusive wine from another club with you! Enjoy today at 8 C.

Look

Extremely pale straw coloured with a small hint of grey. Clean, clear and bright in the glass.

Smell

Wonderful aromas of citrus, including lime zest and lemon. Sweetness of freshly picked white peaches, green melon and golden delicious apple combined with tart Granny Smith green apple skin. Rounded out by green and vegetal notes of zucchini and green pepper.

Taste

Refreshing, light and perfectly dry. Citrus is the headliner in this wine - preserved lemons, lime zest, and pink grapefruit all make tart appearances. Accompanied by honeysuckle, underripe pineapple and a slight buttery smoothness to balance the citrus. An unexpected vegetal note is mixed with a slight herbal quality. Expect a weightier mouthfeel than the traditional Pinot Grigio with medium, crisp acidity and light body. Saluti!

Pairing

The perfect summer companion! This PG is ready for all the summer you can throw at it, from shrimp to crisp summer salads.
