For all our white wine fans out there, this is a gorgeous summer white that puts to shame just about any Pinot Grigio I’ve ever had. It’s so expressive and refreshing - a big old wave of citrus: white peach, nectarine, lemon zest and mandarin oranges. It also has that sharp acidity you rely on to balance the wine and leave that zippy note on the back on your tongue when your finishes that makes you want to keep going back to the well.
The most succulent ripe peach aromas complemented by hints of tangerine and fresh mint waft up from the 2021 Grillo Timpa. It is round and fleshy in feel, with sweet inner florals up front that give way to tropical melon and exotic spice. While a bit extroverted in character, there's plenty of stimulating acidty and sour citrus tones within to maintain a fabulous balance. The 2021 leaves the palate completley refreshed with hints of kiwi and lime zest that linger. This really packs a punch, yet it never gets cloying or tiring. -92 Pts, Vinous
