2011 Cupra Ramato Pinot Grigio

Wine of the Day: 2011 Attems Cupra Ramato Pinot Grigio

We oohed and ahhed over the peach hue of 2011 Attems Cupra Ramato Pinot Grigio ($19); after tasting plenty of crisp whites and full-bodied reds for wine month, it was truly something shiny and new.

Ramato translates to "coppery," and this Attems Cupra is categorized as an orange wine, a style of wine made by leaving dry white wine varietals (in this case, Pinot Grigio) to macerate with their skins for a prolonged period of time to achieve a golden orange tone.

The Cupra Ramato consummates its signature color with a distinct flavor. On the nose, I got a bouquet a roses — the recognizable floral scent that comes to mind with Pinot Grigio. This taste-bud-awakening wine is thirst-quenching, with bright green apple and a slightly grassy wild lavender aftertaste.

With a bolder palate, this bottle is an ideal fit for late Summer evenings rather than the high daytime heat. Pair the chilled bottle with light Italian fare, like polenta with grilled shrimp, or a bowl of handmade fettuccine and mussels.
