Weekly Wine – Mezzomondo

11 Dec

SONY DSCMezzomondo Pinot Grigio Chardonnay IGT
2014
Italy
750 ml
12% ABV
9.95 (LCBO)

I knew what I was getting into with this wine as I’ve had wines from this company before. The first sips confirmed my expectations as this wine is harsh and quite unrefined. It is very tart and you do feel and taste the sulphites that are quite prominent in the mix.
It is a drinkable wine, and that is about it.
This is a Pinot Grigio, albeit blended with Chardonnay, and I have written several times that I have yet to taste a bad one or a very excellent one. Perhaps it is the Chardonnay blend that does not work well here with this wine – giving it a bit of sweet flavouring?
This wine, as a Pinot Grigio, is rather down on the scale. It is all right but there are much better Pinot Grigios on the market at this price point or lower that are better. Some are excellent in fact.
