Wine & Spirits:

"A lithe white focused on Key lime and pineapple flavors, this hints at flowers and pinesap in the initial scent and finish. For grilled sea bass." (06/12)

Product Description:

WINE:
"This unique example of the native Sicilian Grillo is suprisingely concentrated and powerful, thanks to low yields from a rigorous green harvest. The native grape is very prolific and can be uninteresting and watery without attentive vineyard management. Di Giovanna offers one of a few high quality examples of Grillo in Sicily. "

"The Grillo grapes come from the family's Paradiso and Gerbino vineyards where soft rolling hills and a lower altitude produce very ripe and fruit driven grapes. The grapes were hand picked, macerated for 8 hours temperature controlled. Fermented in stainless steel tank and left on the fine lees for 6 months with regular batonage. Grillo is comparable to Sauvignon Blanc, yet much more tropical and lacking in green notes. An expressive bouquet of ripe ruby red grapefruit, pineapple and herbs leads to a rich yet bright mouthfeel with a noteable acidic core and notes of almonds. Very mineral from limestone rich soils." -Winery

WINERY:
"The Di Giovanna family has been cultivating organic vineyards for five generations in western Sicily, just outside the town of Sambuca di Sicilia. Brothers Gunther & Klaus manage the family’s 56 hectare estate and winery where their hand crafted wines are made and bottled. Their wines are made exclusively with their estate fruit and all of their vineyards are certified organic by Suolo e Salute SRL." -Winery
