2017 Feudo Montoni, Grillo "Timpa"

Stunning Sicilian Sipper!
You will flip for this stunning Sicilian sipper.
You loved Feudo Montoni's Sicilian red and you are going to flip for their Sicilian white, Grillo.
What makes Feudo Montoni wines so wonderfully distinct?
High elevation vineyards.
At 600 feet above sea level, this stunning Sicilian white is crisp, refreshing and mineral driven - not jammy like many of the lowland wines that endure intense heat.
With aromas of peach, grapefruit and thyme, this Italian white grape (pronounced gree-lo) is best known for its zippy acidity and versatility. An inkling of jasmine and white flowers add to a core of pear and apple. A long finish makes this white a terrific food pairing wine.
Speaking of food, this Sicilian white pairs perfectly with seafood (in particular grilled octopus or prawns), grilled vegetables, and light pasta salads. This wine is loaded with flavors and is ideal for the 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 al fresco dining.
Enjoy!

$16.95 per bottle / $203.40 per case
