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 from Scipione Giuliani, the genius behind our bestselling Il Papavero range.
"Lovely fruity white. Fresh, fruity, absolute pleasure to drink"
Online Review For the 2017 vintage
Pinot Grigio has staged something of a coup in fridge doors and dining tables the world over. 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 a few years back, in high hillside vineyards near the coast in Sicily. He's found nothing to beat them since. The wine's a moreish mix of rich pear and citrus flavours and has both ripeness and bracing freshness thanks to the location of the vines. Sunshine and sea breezes are the perfect grape growing conditions for which Sicily has become famous. A delight with white meats or seafood risotto.

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon

including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
