Villa Locatelli Pinot Grigio 2017
We got a Pinot Grigio! Something we always kind of said we wouldn't, but then we tried this and were wowed by it. We just never wanted to do Pinot Grigio for the sake of it, instead look for the very best examples, in the best Italian region for the grape, and that's Friuli. From a vineyard planted in 1990, with gravel and red clay soils, this is all stainless steel and 5 months on lees. It has the clear chalky minerality that we feel proper Pinot Grigio needs alongside generous apricot and peach flavours. A mini triumph by Tenuta di Angoris, one of the oldest esates in the region founded in 1648.
