Weekly Wine – Riondo

11 Nov

SONY DSCRiondo Pinot Grigio Monte Forte Lot 6
12.5% ABV
$9.95 (Delaware, USA)

This wine has a big impressive name for a very standard Italian Pinot Grigio.
It is good – but very standard. At nearly 10 bucks US you can get a very similar Italian Pinot Grigio in Canada for well under 10. So you lose out on the exchange with this wine.
On the back label it says that “This is a wine to buy by the case.” Why?
Yes it is a very standard Pinot Grigio that won’t offend anyone but by the same token you can buy 12 bottles, a case, of 12 different Italian Pinot Grigio’s and have the same wine in essence.
I wonder what the Lot 6 in the name stands for. One could imagine that this is from some small batch of wine. I suspect that this is just the 6th massive Pinot Grigio “wine lake” that is being drained for our benefit.
