Domini Leone Veneto Bianco Pinot Gregio NV
Hailing from Veneto in the northeast of Italy, the land of Valpolicella, Prosecco and Pinot Grigio, comes this delicious non-vintage Bianco. Leone is an aromatic, co-fermented blend of cold, soft-press Pinot Grigio, Glera, and Chardonnay grown near the lagoon of Venice. With steel fermentation and 8 months of steel-aging, Leone is the perfect aperitif and thirst-quencher for the warm months. 12% alcohol.
Light medium-bodied, dry. Nearly star bright in the glass with pale straw hues, you can see that Leone is about the fresh pulp and not skin-contact. It's a pure expression of aromatic floral notes on the nose, and a palate of white peach, lemon/lime, and salivary gland activating acids. Precise and clean with apple and blossoms on a not-too-dry finish. Pair with light fare.
