Tim’s Tasting Notes


2012 Mavum Pinot Grigio/Pinot Nero, Veneto

£9.50, 12.5%, Amp Fine Wines, Hennings

Pinot Griio and Pinot Nero are very close genetically, so why not combine them in a white wine, vinifying the latter without its skins? The result is rather tasty, with aromatic, Golden Delicious apple, pear and quince notes, and just a hint of wild strawberry. Unoaked, refined and well balanced, this is a real find for less than £10.
