“It’s pristine and delicate, showing nectarine, lemon peel and green tea aromas on the nose, followed by a finely textured palate that’s light and bright. It’s well focused and lingering with mouth-watering acidity, making it attractively refreshing" Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

“Organic wine from Sicily with green apple, grapefruit and green pear flavours. Exactly what I would expect from an Italian pinot grigio in this price category - dry, crisp, restrained wine" Bob Campbell, Master of Wine, Real Review

"I have to admit that I am no big Pinot Grigio fan – either the wines are so unripe as to be vapid and soulless, or they are too creamy and fat as to be undrinkable past the first glass. This Sicilian grown example is a surprise – boasting classic pear and honey characters, with crisp, punchy acidity that makes it appetising and interesting. The perfect everyday white for those guests that cannot handle powerful Chardonnays or bone dry Rieslings" Paul Tudor, Master of Wine

Pinot Grigio is now Italy’s second most planted grape variety with a 500% growth since 2000. Barone Montalto was established in the small town of Santa Ninfa, in the province of Trapani, Sicily in 2000. The company manages around 400 hectares of vineyards in total, the majority of which are located around the winery in the rolling hills of the Belice Valley, 500m above sea level, 100km SW of Palermo.
The balance are located in are in the province of Agrigento, in the Valle dei Templi and in Noto to the SE of the island. Barone Montalto produces clean, modern wines balanced by an authentic Sicilian terroir. The abundant sunshine and relatively deep, alluvial, Argilloso Limoso soils have a mix of limestone and sand and are high in organic material producing ripe, healthy grapes that can produce ripe Pinot Grigio phenolics in a dry style at an appealing 12% ABV. NE facing slopes and the cooling Mediterranean breeze ensures low disease pressure and is perfect for organic viticulture and helps the grapes retain a delicious, fresh acidity. 

Food Pairing: Light, freshing and dry with lower alcohol. Perfect with seafood and vegetarian dishes
