Winemaker's Notes:

Pale-straw. Fresh and fruity aromas of pears as well as citrus and grapefruit. Full, fresh and lively, with notes of ripe pear on the finish.

Placido Pinot Grigio is a delightful aperitif, and is perfect for a range of foods including appetizers, fresh salads, seafood, and grilled poultry.

My Notes:

About Placido:

Placido wines owe their phenomenal popularity to choice grapes grown in some of the world's premier wine regions, renowned winemaking expertise and a quality-price ratio difficult to match. The brand inherited its name from a famous Sienese family, the Placidi, on whose vast Tuscan estate some of the Placido vines grow today. Now a worldwide brand, Placido has also brought centuries of European winemaking experience to Chile's grape growing region.

Consisting of eight noble wine types, their wines include: Sangiovese, Trebbiano, Montepulciano D'Abruzzo, Chianti and a fruity Pinot Grigio all from grapes grown in choice Tuscany vineyards. Chile's Maipo Valley offers an ideal micro-climate for cultivating the noblest of French stock, such as Placido's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, and Chardonnay.
