Circa. Pinot Grigio 2009
The Circa Pinot Grigio is a fun and fresh light bodied Pinot Grigio that has plenty of aromatics and flavor. Will be enjoyed with plenty of everyday Italian foods like linguini with clams or shrimp scampi.
Veneto is one of the most prolific wine regions in Italy. Verona, its capital, has been an important wine center since Roman times. Commercial success hasn't always had beneficial effects on the wines. Since the 1970s perceptions of Veneto's most venerable wines—notably Valpolicella and Soave—have suffered thanks to overproduction and the inferior quality of big producers. Thanks to a new generation of small producers who tend their own vines and make their own juice, Veneto's comeback is picking up momentum. The new wines are refreshing and nuanced, whether red or white. Tastes are changing again and these wines are right for the times—all the more so because they offer unbeatable price/quality.
