Villa Sandi Pinot GrigioWell this one’s a surprise. During wine training I remember someone telling me a good Italian Pinot Grigio would taste like bananas. 15 years later, and I’ve finally tasted one. This is not your typical insipid crowd-pleaser, but a full and serious wine. It’s jammed with flavour, and yet still finishes dry and neutral with that trademark bitter almond lash that keeps it firmly in the relam of ‘food wines’. Fruit flavours are mainly up front – banana of course, a little marshmallow and fresh star anise. Apricots are a merest nuance twisting through the middle and back palate. Luverly.
