This is what Pinot Grigio tasted like decades ago before the mass market existed. Note the wine’s ever so slightly gray-pink tinge. Note the full body, the voluptuousness—it does a full malolactic fermentation. Notice also how incredibly clearly it translates its terroir. Yes, this Pinot Grigio is terroir-driven, intensely stony, and I think it will age quite well. A bottle from the 1980s I shared a few years ago with the old proprietor was very special.—Dixon Brooke
