Wine Advocate 88 points - The 2012 Friuli Colli Orientali Pinot Grigio shows a surprisingly fragrant side of the grape with bright aromas of white peach, lemon blossom and honeydew melon. Pretty floral intensity fills in the rear. This is a rather unusual and especially sophisticated expression of stainless steel Pinot Grigio. Mineral tones and bright acidity appear on the close. Drink: 2014-2016. (Dec 2013)
