This Wine Keeps Getting Better

 Some wineries are not satisfied with just a great score. They have a need to do better! This is so for the wine below.

OGGI Pinot Grigio 2023    Veneto                                      $10:95       94/100 points
Colour: White, clear with very light yellow colour
Nose: Citrus, passion fruit, lychee, honey with some orange blossom nuance
Palate: Dry, light body, fresh, balanced sugar/acidity with citrus/almond finish
Food Matches: Aperitif, seafood, pork roast, cod cuts 
Comments: Second time that this wine was tasted. Last score was 90 points however the wine has undergone a process change with different grapes from other area of the property. The result is a difference from a very resourceful and well made wine to an excellent, exceptional wine of high quality. The resulting points are based on the quality per price ration.
