Genagricola, Friuli DOC (Venezia Giulia, Italy) Pinot Grigio “Poggiobello” 2020

($25, Montcalm Wine Importers):  Anyone who wants to know why Pinot Grigio became so popular should taste this wine.  And then lament that more PG, as it is sometimes known, doesn’t deliver this much enjoyment.  Its fresh and white flower aromas are immediately captivating.  Not an innocuous Pinot Grigio, this one has substance and length.  It’s perfect as an aperitivo, but is equally well-suited to the table for antipasti or a linguine with clam sauce.
