2006 Gaetano D’Aquino Pinot Grigio

Price: $3.99 @ Trader Joe’s imported by D’Aquino Italian Imports

What They Said:

Per the distributor ” This wine is ideal outside of a meal. It is delicious with hors d’ oeuvres and fish dishes, particullarly lobster and crabmeat. Also an excellent companion for soups and white meats. Serve chilled at a temperature of 8°-10° C.”

What I Think:

This one has been in the fridge for a while as I was keen to try it. I came home from a business trip to find my wife had opened it in my absence. No worries, there is plenty left for an opinion. I pull out the stopper and don’t get the sound I like, it hasn’t been pumped. I now realize I can’t pass negative judgment on this experience even if I want to. Not to bother, it must be good. Even in this state at a bare minimum it was very quaffable. Many of the flavors had been muted but at this price it was still well worth the money. Looking forward to seeing what the next bottle brings.

  1. My husband and I bought a bottle of the 2008 Pinot Grigio and were pleasantly surprised. We had purchased it at World Market around Christmas and have not been able to find it anywhere since. I heard that Trader Joe’s carries it, but Trader Joe’s is not in Texas where we live. Does anyone know where we might find it?

    • Hey Patty,

      I work at a World Market in Illinois. Was the bottle you bought blue and kind of triangular shaped? I know my store is currently out, but we do tend to get it in every so often. I would just keep calling and checking back.
