Monte Volpe Pinot Gris 2016
With a nod to our rich Italian heritage in America, Monte Volpe Winery produces a wonderful Pinot Grigio. Monte Volpe is the oldest producer of Pinot Grigio in California. Vineyards: The Monte Volpe Pinot Grigio grapes come from the Nube Bianco Vineyard (100% of the blend) in the eastside of Potter Valley at the headwaters of the Russian River at 1000 ft. elevation. This blend has produced a rich, floral wine with aromas of tropical fruits, cantaloupe melon, and multi-colored Jonathan apple with a hint of wet stone. A lively mouthful of spicy apple and stony minerality is balanced by crisp acidity throughout the finish. Excellent as an apperitivo or serve with seared scallops with Beurre blanc sauce, grilled swordfish or chicken piccata.
