Odd Bacchus: “a white Super Tuscan that smells like spring”

Mazzoni winemaker Alessandro Bindocci has been traveling across the U.S., leading guided tastings and wine dinners featuring his family’s wines. He’s also had a chance to meet with some leading wine writers in the U.S., like Rob Frisch, who authors the excellent wine blog Odd Bacchus.

Here’s what Rob had to say about Alessandro’s Mazzoni Pinot Grigio:

A white Super Tuscan… The wine smelled fresh and lively, like a green whiff of spring. On the palate, it exhibited focused and controlled fruit, prickly acids, some aromatic qualities, and a surprisingly lush finish. It was light but complex, and a fine value for the price. Sampled with a white pizza topped with arugula and parmesan, the food-friendly acids kicked into high gear, and the wine became juicier and rounder. A delight.
