DESCRIPTION

Blason Pinot Grigio is really sensational; full in the mouth, rich on the palate and extraordinarily drinkable at this price!  Golden yellow with coppery highlights expresses a floral character. Very aromatic, with good complexity, length and that subtle elegance that shows muscle and a long and flowing finish.  Excellent as an aperitif and with fish based hors d’oeuvres.
