This crsip, tart Pinot Grigio from the cooler regions of Italy speaks to owner Franz Haas’ passion for fine wine and art — the playful hand on the label is by noted Italian artist Riccardo Schweizer. The KRIS Pinot Grigio Delle Venezie 2010, $8-$11, is a refreshing summer treat with lemon-lime, tangerine and hints of almond on the nose and a blast of acidity, citrus, minerality and herbaceous notes on the palate. It’s dry-dry-dry. Haas represents the seventh generation of a long line of winemaker artisans in the Alto Adige. The wine is widely available at all major supermarkets and many independent wine stores such as Red Wagon, Wood’s Fine Wine, Holiday Market and Market Square. You are likely to catch it on sale.
