LAGARIA Pinot Grigio "Delle Venezie" 2009 - VENETO - ITALY

100% Pinot Grigio
Entirely from the homonymous grape, this is a brilliant, smooth, medium-bodied, fresh and well balanced wine; extremely eclectic with food, ideal for apéritifs and parties.  Lagaria is a hot little commodity these days because it's not super well known, yet it's very good Lagaria has some real flavors - zippy lime and other citrus flavors with some pleasant mineral inflections on the finish.

Veneto, Italy

Lagaria comprises three crisp, clean, versatile whites from the crisp, clean climate of northeastern Italy's Val Lagarina (hence the name.) and two delightfully rich Mediterranean reds.
Everything about these wines is joyful, allegro con brio. They scintillate in the glass with their crystalline, brilliant hues. They even scintillate on the label, where Maria Gemma Empson has captured the vibrant colors of hillside vineyards and mountainous horizons. Not to mention the great price-to-quality ratio!
Neil & Maria Empson wanted to make the quality of privileged terroirs as accessible, easy-going and affordable as possible. So they created fruity, fragrant, well balanced little beauties whose medium to full body and smooth texture gently highlight any course, any day.
Since May 2005, the crisp Lagaria whites from northeastern Italy's cool Alpine valleys have been flanked by two intense reds from sultry Sicily. This Mediterranean island - rich in aromas, colors and flavors - is one of the country's most exciting new frontiers in enological innovation, and Neil & Maria Empson felt its sizzle and zest would beautifully complement the Trentino terroirs. Soil characteristics for all wines are enhanced by an altitude of 250-500 meters (820-1,640 feet) above sea level; vineyard management is painstaking and severe, ensuring crop yields far lower than competing wines'. Needless to say, character and concentration well transcend the minuscule price tags.
