Tiamo means “I love you” in Italian and
nothing could be more descriptive of
this wine than that. Grillo is an indige-
nous grape of Sicily that never made it
off the island until about 10 years ago.
And just like when you meet your great-
est love, you can’t help but exclaim on
the first sip “Where have you been all
my life?”
We can get carried away using so many
different words to describe a wine. But,
when it comes to Grillo, the word “de-
licious” says it all. It may have many of
the same attributes of Chardonnay or
Chenin Blanc or even Viognier, but it’s
still it’s own wine and again, delicious is
the best word to describe it.
The grapes are grown in a certified
organic vineyard with limestone soils.
They’re located on south-facing hillsides
which allow them to absorb greater
amounts of light from the sun. The con-
ditions couldn’t be any more perfect for
this grape, and it shows.
The grapes are harvested and fer-
mented in stainless steel tanks. The
wine is then allowed to settle before
being stored briefly and then bot-
tled. The wine never sees any oak so
the freshness of the grape can shine
through.
Here is perfection in a bottle. The light
whiffs of peach nectar, guava, and apri-
cot emanate from the glass in gentle
waves, signaling the flavors to follow
and they do so endlessly. The palate is a
lovely amalgam of tropical fruits mixed
with citrus, spice, hints of guava and
apple - and a long, lingering finish. Here
is a wine you’re going to love.
