Winemaker's Notes:

The Danzante 2006 Pinot Grigio boasts a light straw yellow that fairly shimmers and opens to appealing notes of crisp apple and pear that segue into a lovely, delicate florality. The aromatic fruitiness continues onto a generous, full-bodied palate that is wonderfully fresh and lively. The wine finally culminates in a full-flavored, dynamic finish.

Serving suggestions: Grilled vegetables, seafood first courses, and light, salted fish

My Notes:

About Danzante:

Danzante wines are the third collaboration created by the joint venture between the Robert Mondavi family of Napa Valley and the Marchesi de' Frescobaldi family of Tuscany, Italy. Danzante, Italian for "dancing," encourages the everyday, energetic celebration of la dolce vita.

The Mondavi -- Frescobaldi partnership was formed in 1995 in part because Robert Mondavi's family wanted to return to their Italian roots. This was the first joint venture in Italy between two internationally distinguished wine producers using their combined resources and winemaking expertise to create Italian wine of superior quality and elegance. Danzante was introduced in 1999 with the 1997 vintage of Danzante Sangiovese and the 1998 vintage of Danzante Pinot Grigio.

The Frescobaldi family name has a long history in Italy, going back 700 years. For centuries, farming and winegrowing have been a tradition in the Frescobaldi family. Marchesi de' Frescobaldi SpA was established in 1980 and is wholly owned by the five Frescobaldi siblings: Dino, Vittorio, Maria, Ferdinando and Leonardo. The company's headquarters are in Florence and its nine estates are scattered throughout the Tuscan countryside.
