A beautiful straw-yellow color, this Pinot Grigio is soft with citrus-meets-tropical fruit now. Flavors of green apple and lime are in full force for this wine that works great for cooking (and then sipping).

Giancarlo Tommasi is the principal winemaker behind the Tommasi estate, which has been family-run for four generations, since 1902. Giancarlo is regarded as one of the top-quality producers in the Veneto region. The family owns 284 acres in Valpolicella Classico, making them the single largest landowners in the area. Over the years they’ve expanded their holdings in other areas including Tuscany, Puglia, Basilicata and Oltrepo Pavese. Winemaking adheres to a philosophy that respects the integrity of terroir and the traditions of the past.
