Sun Goddess by Mary J Blige Pinot Grigio Ramato 2019
Introducing Sun Goddess, from iconic Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, actress, producer and philanthropist, Mary J. Blige.
Sun Goddess wines are produced with love and passion from sun-kissed vineyards owned by the Fantinel family in Friuli Venezia Giulia.
The bouquet is intense and complex, with hints of fruits (peach, melon and berries). On the palate it is round, with a pleasant acidity, soft tannins and a finish rich in mineral sensations. With origins in Italy’s northeastern province of Friuli Venezia Giulia, Ramato (Italian for “auburn” or “copper”) wines are produced by macerating Pinot Grigio grape must with its skins. The skins’ pink hue gives the wines color from a semi-pale pink to dark orange, depending on maceration time.

|After a string of tough vintages that didn’t wear well on this famous brand’s Sauvignons, the latest release is back up to snuff. Heady notes of lime blossom, peach and gooseberry lead the pack, with subtle aromas of green bell pepper and dried herbs following, to remind you where you are in the Sauvignon Blanc world. In the mouth a creamy texture and fleshy fruit are freshened by lively acidity. Juicy lime on the finish makes it easy to take another sip, especially if a plate of sushi or spicy southeast Asian food is nearby.|
