We are happy to share a lovely review of Tommasi’s Le Rosse Pinot Grigio on the wine blog “Bigger Than Your Head.”

Wine blogger Fredric Koeppel starts off his review of this “Summer-y pinot grigio” as a reminder that the pinot grigio grape “doesn’t have to produce bland, insipid, watery wines intended for mindless consumption.” Writing in high praise of the Le Rosse, he goes on to note that the wine is “quite sprightly on the palate, surprisingly dense and lithe” offering aromas of “heather, sea salt, roasted lemons and almond blossom, white pepper, verbena and quince.” Fredric recommends a few food pairings for the Le Rosse including “grilled shrimp, tuna tartar” and “virtually any roasted or grilled fish.”
