Seven Bucks and Change

*Disclaimer: I received this wine as a sample from F. Wildman.

Now, this is what I like to see. And Pinot Grigio is often not my thing. But I’ll give credit where credit is due, and I see this wine available on sale online for $7 and a little pocket change. If $7 is your price range and you enjoy Pinot Grigio, this is the wine for you. I have lots of family and friends who absolutely love Pinot Grigio. I would serve this to them in a heartbeat as a great, inexpensive example and hope to forever move them away from the 1.5L jugs they currently drink.  The 2008 Folonari Pinot Grigio is imported by F. Wildman, clocked in at 12% alcohol by volume, and had a screw cap closure. Even better! I can really imagine this being the poolside Pinot Grigio of choice.

On the nose I found melon, citrus, lemon, white pepper, spice, and slight honey notes. The nose smelled clean and crisp to me. In the mouth, citrus dominated. I got lime, lemon, spice, lots o’ citrus, and slight melon notes. Overall, I found the wine to be very lemony. Refreshing, clean, crisp, and displaying typical Pinot Grigio characteristics all in a $7.19 bottle.
