As Richard Baudains of Decanter notes, “Everybody’s talking about how fantastic today’s best Sicilian wines are.” That’s certainly true of this crisp, fruity Pinot Grigio – here in convenient half bottles, for when just a glass or two will do.
Beyond the Label
White peach, ripe apple and grapefruit with a zingy freshness
Citrus, juicy pear, nectarine and fruit salad aromas
Pinot Grigio has staged something of a coup in fridge doors and on dining tables the world over in recent years. Truly outstanding examples like this are rare, however. Il Papavero is from Scipione Giuliani, whose dedication to tracking down the finest parcels of fruit throughout Italy sets him apart from his winemaking peers. He discovered the grapes for this wine in high hillside vineyards by the coast in Sicily. It’s mouthwatering stuff, a moreish mix of rich pear and citrus flavours. It has both full ripeness and bracing freshness thanks to the idyllic location of the vines. Sunshine and sea breezes are the perfect grape growing conditions for which Sicily has become famous. Il Papavero is a delight with white meats or seafood risotto.
"Delightful, light fruity wine. Easy drinking, from the pear aroma followed by the light fruit"
