#7 Kettmeier Pinot Grigio 2021
In the Bible, it is said that God created the world in six days and rested on the seventh. Hardly the case for Giuseppi Kettmeier. It took him years, decades even to build his winery. Near Lake Caldaro the Kettmeier family has produced outstanding Pinot Grigio since the early 1900s. Our second white wine from the northernmost areas of Italy to make this list, this Pinot Grigio offers far more than the standard dry, white, clean, inoffensive, and boring style of the well-known brand Pinot Grigio’s that inhabit the market. This wine has a depth of character and gobs of flavor. The first thing you might notice is the honeydew aroma followed promptly by sweet baking spices. Jammed with minerality, this medium-bodied Pinot Grigio finishes with a rush of crisp acidity. See how sensational “good” Pinot Grigio can be.
