It’s easy to beat up on Pinot Grigio. There’s just so much mass-produced plonk out there that’s utterly forgettable that it’s easy to forget that Pinot Grigio can be made into something totally delicious and satisfying. Castel Sallegg is situated in the northernmost part of Alto-Adige, in close proximity to Austria, in fact. Grown on sandy soils in vineyards high above Lake Caldaro, this crisp beauty shows notes of apple blossom, apricot, and pear on the nose with a zingy, juicy palate that shows just a touch of citrus zest. This is what well-crafted Pinot Grigio should taste like.
