This is a fascinating wine and has been a staple in my household for many a year. Take your typical Italian Pinot Grigio style and forget it, this is completely different. This leaps from the glass with ripe orchard and tropical fruit, but it’s the palate that makes this wine so memorable. It has a texture to it which is remarkable, it’s got a minerality to it which you may associated with the chalky soils of Chablis Grand Cru sites like ‘Le Clos’, married with the ripeness of the apricots and peaches. There’s also a little hint of tannin like grip which give such lovely balance. It really is a wine I’d encourage people to try.

Critic reviews
"The 2021 Pinot Grigio Dessimis lifts from the glass with exotic florals, sweet spices and peach. This opens with a burst of inner sweetness, complicated by zesty acidity and mineral tones, as a vivid note of ripe pear evolves on the palate. This finishes classically dry and slightly grippy, leaving nuances of white strawberry and rosy inner florals to linger. The 2021 is a more mellow edition of Dessimis, yet enjoyable all the same."
Eric Guido, January 2023
