Norm’s Tasting Notes 2011 Maso Canali Pinot Grigio

--By on --

norm bentleyThe 2011 Maso Canali Pinot Grigio is another in a long line of good vintages from Maso Canali. It comes from Trentino, Italy, and helps set the standard for what a quality Italian Pinot Grigio should be. Past vintages have received high scores from wine critics, and this one is no different.

The bouquet is a fragrant blossom, holding the combined scents of both fruit and flowers, with a trailing breeze of citrus. Fresh and invigorating, the flavors abound with tropical fruit, apricot, and apple. The finish is crisp, dry, and clean with a lingering taste of the apple, and a slight acidity which beckons you back for more. The wine is 100% Pinot Grigio, and has an alcohol content of 13%.┬áNorm’s score is 89.

We enjoyed the Maso Canali with a wonderful creation of Shrimp and Scallops Fra Diavolo with fettucine, lots of garlic, and prepared by the “Chardonnay Queen”. It was superb! This wine would pair well with almost any seafood or fowl entree, and would also make a great “back porch sipper”.

Score 89

Price: $15 – $19
