Vendi Pinot Grigio 2009 Delle Venezie isn’t typical of the varietal. It’s pale straw color doesn’t lead you to expect an overwhelmingly fruity taste. Its flavors are pear and tropical fruit, and this wine is far less dry than most Pinot Grigios. Light acidity clears the palate, preventing it from being overly cloying.

This is a great wine for those who prefer a fruity, not very dry wine, but who don’t want a truly sweet wine. It could be a good compromise white wine for a gathering of wine newbies and those with more demanding tastes.

I wasn’t able to track down anything about the winery, though it is labeled as a Venetian wine imported by Joseph Victori Wines. Nobody has blogged about the wine, either.

Although not your typical Pinot Grigio, this wine is pleasant enough. If you can find Vendi Pinot Grigio 2009, consider it a very inexpensive brunch wine or accompaniment to fruit.
