With fruit sourced from various regions around Venice, Bivio’s budget Pinot Grigio delle Venezie IGT is a very simple wine. Perhaps the palest shade of yellow I’ve ever seen in a wine, it’s clear (no pun intended) from the start that there’s not a whole lot to this white. Crisp and with some floral notes in the nose and minerals in the body, it would be fine as an everyday “keep it in the fridge” wine were it not for a slightly harsh finish, uncharacteristic for an otherwise pleasant experience.
