Winemaker's Notes:

Light straw yellow in color, the 2010 Tiamo Pinot Grigio has lovely aromas of fresh and rich fruity apple and pear with a hint of citrus fruit that fade into the floral bouquet. On the palate, it is fresh and fruity, very clean and crisp.

Tiamo Pinot Grigio pairs well with a wide array of lighter cuisine, especially fish/shellfish, poultry, pastas in cream sauce and softer cheeses. It's also an ideal aperitif.

My Notes:

About Tiamo:

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.

Tiamo Sangiovese comes from the region of Puglia in the Southern heel of Italy. The region today is similar to what the Languedoc wine region in France was some 30 years ago. It is a wine area producing large quantities of wine but which in the last few years has developed a reputation for making many excellent wines at very affordable prices. The vast majority of wine produced in Puglia is red and is made from grapes such as Negro Amaro, Malvasia and Primitivo.

Tiamo Pinot Grigio comes from the region of Veneto in the North of Italy. Many Pinot Grigios are often high in acidity and so we blend the Pinot Grigio with a small percentage (10%) of Garganega which is the main grape for Soave. Therefore, the wine is clean and crisp like other Pinot Grigio's but with added depth of fruit.

All of the Tiamo wines come from small growers and cooperatives and are blended by the owners of Tiamo, Melvyn and Jane Master. The wines that are selected are shipped to Trento where they are bottled by one of the best bottling companies in the North of Italy.
