Edi Simcic, Sivi Pinot
(SEE-vee PEE-no)

 

Tasting Notes: The Seattle Times claims this wine “boldly goes where no Pinot Grigio has gone before,” and we think they are right. This Pinot Grigio from Edi Simcic is barrel fermented for more than a year, which helps present soft, velvety tannins, and a blissful bouquet of green pear, honey-cream, and minerals. What is miraculous, however, is that it retains its acidity, perhaps the primary secret to Pinot Grigio’s stunning success worldwide. There are so few cases made of this one, that if you’re lucky enough to find it, it’s a must have.
