Winemaker's Notes: This straw-yellow wine shows attractive, tropical fruit aromas. Fresh and charming palate flavors gain weight and become full on the mid-palate, where fruitiness blends with traces of honey. A dry finish has a citrus twist. An ideal aperitif, this wine is perfect with hors d’oeuvres, fish, and white meats. This medium-bodied white has great personality, well-suited to modern cuisine.
Expert Review: Such a clever wine, the Masi Masianco unravels one of the ways to bring pinot grigio to the fore and make it perfect for today's lover of international wines. With the addition of 25% the local Verduzzo (picked just a bit overripe) the winery has done a superb job of fattening up the wine a bit. The result: A very delicious, rewarding white, with plenty of juiciness on the palate and a fine crispness in the aftertaste. Flavors show core fruit and delectable ripeness. I favor paring this one with an oven-roasted chicken. Score: 91 points -- Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
