LSommelieret’s go where almost no sommelier has ever been—Pinot Grigio. Produced outside Verona, host city to the annual Vin Italy wine festival and home to Romeo and Juliet, Tommasi Pinot Grigio is made from Italy’s number-one grape. Plentiful and popular, this  medium-bodied no-oak white wine expresses honeysuckle floral up front, leading gently to toasted almond crème brûlée and finishing with refreshing sweet citrus. It’s soft and round, dry but aromatic, almost crisp and definitely bright. Tommasi Pinot Grigio goes well with all that summer has to offer: sweltering heat, fruits de mer, pastas, tapas, and sunsets on the terrace and evenings by the pool.  is served BTG downtown at Restaurant IPO, where it pairs perfectly with the Wild Mushroom Risotto. Or put on your al fresco attire and make sure Tommasi is on the poolside guest list.
