La Gioiosa et Amorosa, Pinot Grigio, Veneto (2008)

This ones another heavy tipple. It's nose belies it's inner strength, being of fresh almonds that have been stored in peach trifle. Meanwhile it's appearance is almost crystal clear, albeit with an emerald glint.

This pinot has an earthy, almost gravel like palate. It taste is strong enough to have jaws, like a pit bull jumping down your throat and gnawing at your adenoids. A good thing when your looking for a snifter with a little more bite than the average pinot.
Finish wise, it doesn't let up. It leaves one with a bitter aftertaste, and is very nasal. It keeps the strength of it's flavours going to the last breath, and is very heavy overall on the senses.

All in all a heavy weight on the taste front, and a tipple which I for one would heartily recommend.

Keep on drinking...
