Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio 2016, Trentino

Just because the kids are back to school, it doesn’t mean that summer has to be over. There’s still plenty of time to enjoy fun in the sun with a cool drink on the patio surrounded by friends and family. Celebrate the last few weeks of summer weather with a refreshing glass of Pinot Grigio from the mountains of Northern Italy. There’s nothing to memorize for this taste test!


Tasting Notes:  This delightfully bright and crisp wine shows the finesse and style of Italian Pinot Grigio. Wonderful aromas of pear, apple and minerals dominate the nose, with a hint of wild flowers. Crisp apple and pear flavours are perfectly balanced on the palate by a citrusy mineral seam that runs through the wine. The finish is bright with hints of almond and pear.

Enjoy With:  Appetizers, soups, pasta, grilled fish or poultry.

Style:  Light and crisp white wine.

Terroir/Region:  The Trentino region of northern Italy is home to visually stunning and pristine vineyards, with microclimates that suit each varietal grown. Flowing from the Italian Alps that surround the Mezzacorona winery, the Adige River has carved a sunny alpine valley prized for its hillside vineyards. This is home for this Pinot Grigio, where mineral-laden soil produces an elegant and approachable wine that is distinctly Italian.

Producer:  In addition to being one of the world’s most technologically advanced wineries, Mezzacorona also has some of the industry’s best winemakers. They are constantly producing wines with strong ratings, renowned for their consistent quality vintage after vintage. Their knowledge of local microclimates and experience with different varietals combine to create wines that really shine!

Availability:  Mezzacorona Pinot Grigio is available year-round in both 750mL and 1.5L bottles in the Italian section of the LCBO. The 1.5L bottle is $3.00 off until September 10.
