Winemaker's Notes:

A brilliant, light-golden wine with a fresh, fruity nose reflecting nuances of dried fruit and hay with bottle age. The palate is dry and lively, and high in extract due to the low yield. Bollini Pinot Grigio Reserve Selection rewards the consumer after a few years bottle age by developing a luminous, golden color and superb honeyed aspect on the palate.
My Notes:

About Bollini:

Neil and Maria Empson's proprietary label was named after the Italian word for "hallmark" - bollino. Aptly so, for when Bollini was born, in 1979, connoisseurs and consumers world-wide had been looking to the Neil Empson Selections imprint on bottles of Italian wine for a decade, as a guarantee of quality and reliability.

The Empsons now determined to combine impeccable quality and accessible pricing in a brand of their very own, destined to fill a badly needed market niche: internationally appealing wines, known and appreciated everywhere, at price points everyone could afford.

Neil and Maria chose a range of noble varietals from Italy's northeastern regions of Friuli and Trentino, where high altitudes, night/day, winter/summer temperature extremes, multitude of microclimates and alluvial geo-history speak excellence and extract.
