2019 Feudo Montoni "Timpa" Grillo Sicily
Winemaker Notes: Timpa is the name of the cru from which the grapes hail. The name has its origins in the Sicilian word, “timpa” meaning strong slope. In fact the vineyard climbs up a hill with a degree that exceeds 70%.
Straw yellow in color with green reflections. The nose has strong notes of yellow peach and apricot, with floral aromas of Sicilian Spanish broom and almond flowers on the finish. On the palate, it is fresh, persistent and has a remarkable acidity that is well-balanced with the alcohol. It has a long and soft finish.
Wilfred Wong - 92pts - "The 2018 Feudo Montoni Timpa Grillo is a delicious wine. This wine shows the earthiness sometimes found in wines from Sicily. Enjoy its attractive aromas and flavors of earth, dust, and savory spices with an oven-roasted pork tenderloin."
Robert Parker - "I am reminded of the wind-swept waves of grass you see when you look over the beautiful expanse of this property in inland Sicily. The 2018 Sicilia Grillo Timpa is a balanced and fresh white wine that delivers equal parts citrus, fruit and sharp mineral intensity. Then, you get that attractive smell of freshly cut wild grasses."
