Kris Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2014

Kris Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2014: Lemon-green color; spring flowers, citrus on bright nose; citrus, tangerine, apricot, almond on the palate.

Wonderfully crisp, clean, refreshing, excellent acidity (3.5 pH), superb with food—tossed salads, grilled white meat and fish, pasta. Pure stainless steel fermentation and aging, zero oak (the correct choice for pinto grigio). Delle Venezie is part of the Tre Venezie wine region on Italy’s northeastern border north of Venice, and ranks with Tuscany and Piedmont as a world class Italian wine region. Della Venezie, Alto Livenza, and Venezia Giulia (the three Venezie) are Indicazione Geografica Tipica (IGT) designations, a mark of quality in Italian wine. The region is famous for white wines, especially pinot grigio; offerings reflect Germanic and Slavic roots. (Tre Venezie was at times part of the Venetian Republic and the Austro-Hungarian Empire.) Pinot grigio is not just Italian name for pinot gris, it also designates a style of wine, and Kris is a delicious and affordable example. $12-13
