I gave this wine a 9 because it departs from the overall stereotyped idea of what Pinot Grigio should taste like.  While this is another Pinot Grigio from the producer who makes one that I am totally in love with, it's not necessarily a winner for me, but not a loser either.

The nose is very floral with the scent of white flowers (I really have to start smelling more flowers so that I can place the scents better) and you have the high character of pears, but in a demure way.  The color is a nice straw yellow and the mouth is middle of the road.  It is a lovely wine, but unfortunately it is highly overshadowed by the Colle Ara.
