Di Giovanna is among the oldest viticulturalist family’s in Sicily. The family property is now managed by brothers Gunther and Klaus Di Giovanna. Their organically cultivated vineyards are nestled in the mountainside of Monte Genuardo, a protected nature reserve in the heart of the Terre Sicane zone.
The vineyards are planted with international and indigenous varietals after extensive soil studies in the 1980’s. The white varietals include Chardonnay, Grillo & Viognier and the red varietals Nero d’Avola, Nerello Mascalese, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon & Merlot. The soils consist of volcanic tuff, chalky, limestone and clay mix. The family vineyards are worked by hand from pruning until harvest, following organic methods from the vineyards to the wine cellar.
The grape, Grillo, was born from crossing two varieties, Catarratto and Moscato d’Alessandria. Grillo today is one of the most interesting native white grapes of the western Sicilian landscape. Di Giovanna’s Grillo Vurria has a golden yellow color with brilliant reflections. On the nose it opens up with aromas of citrus fruits, honeydew melon, tropical hints and mineral nuances. The flavor is intense on the mid-pallet with expressive fruit notes and a savory finish.
Pair with: roasted or grilled chicken or pork with roasted vegetables. Alternatively, the typical potatoes with rosemary and Sicilian sausages.
We also sell Di Giovanna’s Gerbino Rosato, Gerbino Bianco, Gerbino Rosso and Vurria Nero D’Avola.
