Decanter reminds us “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. A fresh, juicy Pinot Grigio, great value too.
"Really nice balanced white - could drink on any occasion. Fruity"
Online Review For the 2018 vintage
Pinot Grigio has staged something of a coup in fridge doors and on dining tables the world over in recent years. Truly outstanding, well priced 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 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 risotto.
