Buona Notte "Chiassoso" Columbia Gorge White 2019Regular price $30.00 Save $-30.00
A beautifully perfumed, high-acid fresh orange wine that shimmers peachy pink in the glass. So delicate and pretty in the glass that it’ll turn heads. The fact that it’s Pinot Grigio and made with skin contact (½ eight days, ½ six days, whole cluster) automatically recalls the Northern Italian Ramato, but this isn’t a heavy, powerful orange wine.
Though flavorful, it’s fresh. It has rich, herbaceous tannins with a dark black tea and cherry pit bitterness, and a citrusy lift and subtle spice that brings it to the next level. Chiassoso is an Italian word for “rambunctious” or “full of life,” and this high-acid blessing to the dinner table or the stoop lives up to its name. Shockingly satisfying, and ready for anything that you throw at it! Serve chilled. 12.6%. [Matthew Hawkins, 2/25/21]
