Matt’s review:

Ruffino’s Lumina Pinot Grigio is a crowd pleasing fresh and fruity unoaked wine that’s perfectly suited for enjoying on a patio in the sun, or throughout the year with lighter fare such as appetizers, roasted poultry, or seared fish. From northeastern Italy, where the finest Pinot Grigio’s are born, Lumina’s light and crisp style is sure to please. The nose shows sweet orchard fruit, citrus, lemon meringue, and a hint of minerality. The palate is refreshing with sweet pear, yellow apple, and honeysuckle leaving a crisp and clean finish. Great value at under $14 via LCBO. Tasted September 2017. 88 points. Matt Steeves – http://www.quercusvino.ca
