Beppe Morchetta Pinot Grigio 2020, Italy
Sicily may not be the traditional heartland of Italian pinot grigio, but it sure as hell produces a good one. They’ve got some wonderful soils there, loads of lovely nourishing sunshine and cooling sea breezes to retain the freshness in the wine. A sip of this is enough to take you there. Crunchy pink lady apples, dribble-down-your-chin pears, zesty citrus aromatics and a soft almondy finish. Beyond delicious, really.
