    As much as I love a good Italian Pinot Grigio, lately the Pinot Biancos have been getting my attention. The St. Michael Eppan is full of sophisticated aromatics as well as elegances and balance that is carried from nose to palate. The warmth from the 2015 vintage shows through the weight, texture and yellow orchard fruit character on the mid palate. The regional acidity of the Alto Adige softly carries the wine into a long, graceful finish.

    I am a devotee of the Pinot Blanc grape in almost all its manifestations, but nowhere does it reach such a perfect balance as in the Alto Adige region of Italy. This is a great example of the lighter, more mineral-driven style of Pinot Blanc, that still retains a certain creamy texture inherent in the varietal. Austere and stony on the nose, the wine displays a round, melon fruit on the palate, with just the right amount of zippy acidity to keep it light and focused. Though lesser known than its cousin Pinot Grigio, the Pinot Bianco grape is well worth exploring, particularly from the region of Alto Adige, where it often performs beautifully.
