Di Giovanna is an estate located almost at Sicily's geographic center, above the city of Sambuca, at approximately 1,500 feet elevation. These beautifully remote high altitude vineyards are managed with organic farming principles and produce some of the island's best quality fruit. Grillo, which can be compared to Sauvignon Blanc (yet much more tropical and lacking in green notes), is planted throughout Sicily and is Di Giovanna's specialty. The 2012 Grillo comes from two of the family's vineyards - Paradiso and Gerbino - and shows an expressive bouquet of ripe ruby red grapefruit, pineapple, and herbs. The mouthfeel is surprisingly concentrated and powerful with bright, fresh acidity and lingering notes of almonds and lemon zest.
