Winemaker's Notes

Many Pinot Grigio's are high in acidity yet lack fruit flavor thus tasting lean and watery. This one is different with bright, fresh acidity and the blended Garganega gives the wine some depth and fruit and broadens the richness and character of the wine. It's crisp with citrus fruit flavors and pairs well with mild cheeses, crab & avocado salad, shrimp scampi, and fresh tomato pasta dishes. Chill down and drink up!

TIAMO, which simply means "I love you" in Italian, is a line of two varietal blends that represent top quality wines from the best growers in their respective regions- Puglia (Italy's heel) & Veneto (Venice region). Owner Mel Master was always excited by the potential of the wines of Southern Italy and eventually went there to put together his own blend. He met an American wine maker who lives in the capital of Lecce and was introduced to the right people. The result was a lovely blend of Sangiovese (unusual in Puglia because very little is grown there) and Primitivo. After the success of the red Tiamo, Mel wanted a matching white but could not find anything he liked from the South and so went north to the Veneto. The result was a blend of Pinot Grigio with a small addition of Garganega (the main grape in Soave). Both wines come from small growers and cooperatives and Mel puts the blends together himself.
