Friendship Discovery Renewal; Under The Tuscan Sun

Best known for her book "Under the Tuscan Sun",  Frances Mayes has created a line of wines to compliment her Tuscan Sun lifestyle.

Pensiero, a Pinot Grigio that comes from the vineyards of the Dolomites in the Trentino-Alto Adige region of Italy is aged in stainless steel tanks with 5 months on the lees.

The color is strawish yellow with aromas of green apple, pear and a hint of floral notes. This gives way to some nice green apple and pear notes on the palate with an nice expression of key lime on a minerally finish.  The wine is nicely balanced with nice acidity.

The wine will pair great with shellfish!

Pensiero defined by Mayer: "a basket of figs, a melon warm from the garden, an armful of pink hydrangeas, a carved walking stick, a jar of wild cherries." Tuscan always arrive with a little gift.

Next time you have an invite, think about bringing a little Tuscan Sun to the party.  Very reasonably prices at $13.99
