Piro Piro Piccolo is a partner project between Greg Martellotto and winemaker Mike Roth of Santa Barbara’s Demetria Winery. They named the label Piro Piro Piccolo, which is Italian for the coastal sandpiper, a small bird commonly found on the beaches around Santa Barbara. The 2012 Piro Piro Piccolo Pinot Grigio is a stunning wine with an unusual depth of flavors including crisp green apple, a touch of pear, and a lingering zing. The wonderful mineral element creates a nicely balanced wine that is crisp, refreshing and delicious.
