October 6, 2014—Fearlessly Archived—Still a fun read; price & availability may have changed.
A Steal at $3.99*!
Don't let that crazy-low price fool you—this is a seriously good-drinking wine! We've featured other Grifone (that's Gree-pho-nay) wines in other Fearless Flyers, and all have been extremely well received. In fact, that's one of the reasons we went to the winemakers in search of another. Boy did they deliver.
Grifone Bianco, like its red cousins bearing the mythical eagle-lion on its label, comes to us from a family-owned winery in Italy's Tuscany region. We asked them for an easy-drinking white that was unique and approachable, crisp and aromatic. They delivered with this blend of 50% Zibbibo (that's Sicilian for Moscato) and 50% Reisling. Pale straw in color, with a fresh, floral bouquet, the wine impresses with delicate honey and stone fruit notes (think peach and apricot) and a crisp, refreshing finish that satisfies, sip after sip. Sunday brunch? Try Grifone Bianco in lieu of (or in addition to) sparkling options. Cocktail party? Grifone Bianco is a cool choice with hot hors d'oeuvres. Frankly, at this price, it's ideal for any occasion.
That price, $3.99* for each 750ml bottle of Grifone Bianco, is a value that may just shake up your expectations when it comes to quality wine.
* Grifone Biancois currently available in Trader Joe's stores where wine is sold. It is $3.99 plus tax unless otherwise noted here: ID: $4.99. Alcohol availability & price may vary due to state laws, taxes, shipment fees & other such stuff. (If we could, we would.)
