For lovers of Italian wines, many of the more exciting discoveries these days are being produced by a new generation of young wine growers on the great and wonderful island of Sicily. 

And among these discoveries is this most delicious Appassimento Grillo from Miopasso. A luscious, pale-golden-hued Sicilian white produced in the ancient Marsala region, where its wines have been highly prized since ancient Roman times. Here, Grillo fruit is hand-picked in several passes of the vines for peak ripeness and then partially dried for optimum concentration of colour, aroma and flavour. The result is a gorgeous combination of nuts, dried fruit and honey on the nose and juicy citrus on the palate. A wine equally gorgeous with grilled chicken or cream-based pasta.

- David Campbell, Founder of FromVineyardsDirect

How does the wine taste? Customer Reviews (1)
On the nose there are notes of dried fruits and nuts, with hints of oranges and grapefruit. The palate is soft and well-rounded, with touches of honey on the long finish. The colour is straw yellow with flecks of gold.

Delicious full-on white with bags of citrus fruit, melon and apricot flavours. I made the mistake of following it with a red appassimento which could not match the white which we all went back to.

"The 2020 Miopasso Appassimento Grillo from Sicily is brand new to FVD's list and a delightful vinous curiosity. Created from 100 per cent Grillo, its made in the appassimento style thats to say, with a proportion of semi-dried grapes. With fine acidity, it has depth, character and concentration alongside hints of preserved citrus, apricots, nuts and herbs. Its both quirky and quaffable."
Jonathan Ray, The Spectator Magazine (Previous vintage)
