Summer nights and Nobilissima Pinot Grigio 2007
Well, it’s July in Texas, and we’re nearing our 30th day over 100 degrees. In weather like this, red wine seems like an enemy, and all I want to drink is white or rose. As such, we’ve been trying a fair amount of cheap whites as a nighttime beverage.
One of my favorites so far has been Nobilissima Pinot Grigio, which runs for about $9. This wine is simple, as many Pinot Grigios are, but it still works for me. There are pleasant aromas of grilled pineapple, white peach nectar, and faint caramel. However, the mouth is the star of this wine. At 12% alcohol, it’s quite round in a medium-body-sort-of-way, with muscular acid, making it great as an aperitif or food accompaniment. I will be buying it again.
