In continuing my tasting tour of Lulu B.’s wines, I had the chance to try their Pinot Grigio. It’s simple, straight forward, and perfect for a Saturday afternoon with friends.
Lulu B. Pinot Grigio is from the Trento, Fiuli, and Veneto regions of Italy. It has 12.5% alcohol and retails for around $10. For more information see www.lulub.com
Now the Fun Part- Tasting the Wine
LuLu B. Pinot Grigio pours a pale straw color in the glass. It has a crisp nose with aromas of pear and citrus. The palate is light with clean flavors of pineapple, pear, and lemon that lead into a tangy, citrus finish. While there isn’t anything complex about this wine, there doesn’t have to be. It’s a great wine to open on a Saturday afternoon with great friends and even better conversation. Cheers!
My Wine Rating- B-
Food Pairing Suggestions- This wine pairs well with pasta with shrimp, a salad with roasted vegetables and chicken, or as an apéritif.
