Wine Find: 2011 Livon Pinot Grigio

May 22, 2012|By Michael Dresser, The Baltimore Sun

There's a lot of just-average Italian pinot grigios on the market, including some well-known brands. Only a few stand out, and this is one of them. It's a ripe, full-bodied white wine with intense flavors of nuts, minerals and herbs — including mint and oregano. There's a roundness, length and complexity that takes this wine out of the realm of the ordinary.

From: Collio, Italy

Price: $16

Serve with: Trout almondine, salads
