Wine Flavors

There are slight floral flavors in San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio that leave a nice tingling in the mouth. This light-bodied rosé is dry with a marked, lively acidity that is refreshing to drink in most circumstances. It's unquestionably drier than San Giuseppe's regular Pinot Grigio.

San Giuseppe Pink Pinot Grigio Tasting Notes

Color & Clarity
San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio has a clear, strong salmony, coppery color — it's not pink, it's not red, but something in between.

Nose
The aromas of San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio are very, very slight — even more slight than their regular Pinto Grigio, which were difficult enough to detect. What is there to smell is floral and a bit creamy with perhaps some berries and citrus.

Palate
There are also slight floral flavors in San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio that leave a nice tingling in the mouth. This light-bodied rosé is dry with a marked, lively acidity that is refreshing to drink in most circumstances. It's unquestionably drier than San Giuseppe's regular Pinot Grigio.

Food Pairing

Pairing San Giuseppe Pink Pinot Grigio with Cheeses

  • Sharp Cheddar Cheese: With sharp cheddar cheese San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio becomes smoother, milder, and a bit sweeter.
  • Mild Cheddar Cheese: I found this to be a rather unpleasant pairing.
  • Swiss Cheese: San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio causes swiss cheese to become more aromatic and acquire a sharper flavor.
  • Aged Gouda: Good pairings cause aged Gouda to become sweeter, nuttier, fruitier, and more complex — and San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio is no exception.
  • Aged Parmesan: Pairing San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio with aged Parmesan is just average.
  • Fresh Camembert: This is a fair paring, but for some reason San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio seems to emphasize the Camembert's bitter edge.

Pairing San Giuseppe Pink Pinot Grigio with Main Dishes

  • Roast Turkey: Paired with roast turkey, San Giuseppe's Pinot Grigio is smoother and fruitier. It's definitely a decent rosé to have with a turkey dinner.
  • Shrimp Scampi: San Giuseppe's Pinot Grigio is smoother and more complex when paired with shrimp scampi. This is an even better pairing than shrimp scampi with San Giuseppe's regular Pinot Grigio.
  • Sushi: Nothing special happens to San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio when paired with sushi, but they work well together and are worth pairing.

San Giuseppe Pink Pinot Grigio

San Giuseppe's Pink Pinot Grigio isn't an outstanding wine, but it's a good wine. If you're looking for something to serve with turkey, especially a Thanksgiving turkey dinner, this is would be a good choice.
