What We’re Drinking: 2015 Tommasi Le Rosse Pinot Grigio

A richer pinot grigio that is perfect for end-of-summer meals. It’s made with grapes from Le Rosse vineyard on the Prunea estate in Valpolicella’s Sant’Ambrogio valley. The wine‘s aromas have apple and lychee. Then a streak of honey begins in the nose and continues into the palate. Hearty and creamy flavors but dry on the end-palate, leading to a crisp, full-stop finish. This wine gets bigger when you drink it with lunch or supper. And if you have any left, it’s even better the second night — as long as you’ve kept it chilled. Pair with late-summer foods like corn, tomatoes and fish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED — BSE
