Wine of the Week for January 23, 2006

Folinari Pinot Grigio - $23.95 (Magnum)
Style: W3
Italy: Veneto

We're skirting the $12 ceiling here. The tasted bottle was a magnum, which is nicely discounted form the $13.05 for a 750 mil. The colour is brilliant almond-straw. Look for heady aromas of spice and citrus with traces of pinesap and almond. The palate is lively and juicy, showing lemon, orange and spice, with a crisp acidity. Very good body and length. It's quite a mouthful and would go well with full flavoured fish, BBQ chicken or roasted pork. (LCBO 621821; also in 750, 229542, at $13.05)
