A new addition to the Lucia/Pisoni portfolio. The wine is named after a mountain that Jeff and Mark Pisoni used to climb when they were young. The 2021 is a fun blend of Pinot Grigio and Pinot Blanc. The Pisoni family will donate $1 from every bottle sold to Ocean Conservancy, but this initial vintage they are donating it to the Monterey Bay Aquarium. Hurry, for this perfect summer wine!
Jeff Pisoni Notes: The newest member of the Lucy family, the 2021 Pico Blanco flaunts its youth as its pale gold shimmers in the glass. Not to be outdone by its appearances alone, this carefully craft blend of 70% Pinot Gris and 30% Pinot Blanc sports a stunning mélange of vibrant aromatics. Red apple, Meyer lemon, and white peach pair with more delicate notes of honeysuckle and a chalky minerality that transports the senses to the limestone slopes of the famed peak. Unmistakable energy in the form of lime, lemon tart, and crunchy acidity meld with supple, rounded flavors of nectarine, ripe stone fruits, and almond skin. Careful management of oxygen before and during fermentation and 100% neutral French oak barrel aging has created a refreshing example of a blend seldom seen in Monterey County, but one that promises to have a very bright future.
