Placido Pinot Grigio 2006

By Scott O'Neal

imageThis wine had a pungent smell, but was lighter in color than the Riesling I had previously tasted.  While the smell was light and lemony, it had a mineral aroma. There was bitter aftertaste, as well as a brief lemon peel taste.  The wine did have a clean, clear, crisp edge to it.  There was a general wince when I tasted it, that made my taste buds stand up, but again,overall, it gave of a clean taste.  Noticeably dry, I would appreciate this wine much more with a good spaghetti dish or fettuccine Alfredo.  Glad to know it wasn't too expensive either (about $10).
