Trentino, Italy

Mezzacorona lies at the foot of the majestic Italian Dolomites. Its vineyards with pergola trellising, characteristic of the region, run from Lake Garda to the foothills of the towering Dolomites. A fresh and wild breeze blows from the over 400 lakes and numerous glaciers of the surrounding mountains, peaking at over 9,000 feet. 
Thanks to a spectrum of microclimates, ranging from Mediterranean and Alpine, and profiting from over a century of winemaking experience, Mezzacorona planted varietals in the zones best tailored to the needs of each varietal, allowing them to flaunt the aromas and flavour of their terroir.

#75 Top 100 Best Buy 2020 "One of the best value whites coming out of Italy, this enjoyable wine has aromas of spring blossom and white stone fruit. Crisp and savory, the fresh palate offers yellow pear and juicy citrus before a hint of white almond signals the close."

"The 2019 is another good vintage of this dependable pinot grigio that has always had more flavour and aroma than most on the shelves. Expect fresh clean aromas of ripe pear and melon fruit with some lemon tones. It is midweight with a lovely creamy texture with the firm acidity keeping it lively. Very good length. Enjoy with seafood or creamy pasta dishes. Tasted July 2020."

Antonio Galloni's Vinous, Jan/2019

2016 -

"Luminous straw yellow. Ripe pear and spicy apple aromas. Refreshingly savory and tight on the palate, offering fresh pomaceous orchard and stone fruit flavors and a riper peach quality. A fresh, fruity Pinot Grigio with good finishing cut and lingering palate presence. Really quite good for an entry-level wine, especially given all the plonk from Italy that’s bottled and labeled as “Pinot Grigio”. Well done here."

 

Wine Enthusiast, Apr/2016

BEST BUY "Heady aromas of yellow stone fruit, grapefruit and a touch of light baking spice lead the way. The full-bodied palate shows apricot, yellow peach, mineral and a hint of nutmeg alongside lively acidity that leaves a tangy finish."

"This is bright and light-bodied, with a stony undertow and hints of white peach and orange peel. Drink now."
