You loved Feudo Montoni's Sicilian red... you are going to flip for their Sicilian white, Grillo.
What makes Feudo Montoni wines so wonderfully distinct?
The high elevation of their vineyards.
Timpa means "strong slope." At a nearly 70% incline, the terroir offers outstanding water drainage.
And, at 600 feet above sea level, these special vineyards produce a stunning Sicilian white that is crisp, refreshing, and mineral driven - not jammy like many Sicilian wines that endure intense heat.
An inkling of jasmine and white flower add to a core of grapefruit, lemon, and dried spice - notably Thyme. Hints of fresh cut grass and vibrant minerality on the backend makes this Sicilian white a wonderful alternative to Sauvignon Blanc.
This Grillo (pronounced gree-yo), is best known for its versatility. It pairs perfectly with seafood (in particular grilled octopus or prawns), grilled vegetables, and light pasta salads. This wine is loaded with refreshing flavors and is ideal for warm weather enjoyment.
And, in case you missed it earlier in the year, Feudo's red (Nero d'Avola), is another stunning Sicilian sipper that you can still order here.
This white and red combination will carry you through any summer alfresco dining.
