Bixio "Italico" Pinot Grigio Terre degli Osci IGT 2019
This fine restaurant-quality imported wine is not available at LCBO stores.
Although the Italico label was previously used for a Veneto wine, the 2019 Italico Pinot Grigio is from Molise, the small coastal region south of Abruzzo and north of Puglia. The vineyards are in an enchanting location between sky and sea, near Petacciato, where they benefit from the cool sea breezes from the nearby Adriatic.
"Served well chilled (a must-do!), this wine has super impressed us and our clients as it is absolutely lovely and tastes like a more expensive wine!" --Rolando, 2020
