Bright, grapey, floral, creamy and tasty. There is a lot to love in the glass. It is not super complex but is easy to drink. Refreshing when cold and textually satisfying when served a bit warmer. Drink over the warmer months. Serve with antipasto. Gotta love this Sicily IGT Grillo.
Embracing local varieties from their Sicilian home, this vineyard makes delicious wines across multiple ranges and sites.
Means ‘cricket’ in Italian and a natural offspring of Catarrato and Zibibbo. . It is a variety that is mostly used for the production of Marsala but is capable of being made into a dry white table wine too. Its ability to withstand high temperatures makes it a natural choice to grown in Sicily and Puglia. Its high glycerin content makes for great texture and the ability to be picked early for a delicate style or late for an opulent expression means it is quite versatile as a grape.
In a constant tussle with Puglia to win the title of largest volume produced each year, the wines of Sicily are as varied as its history. Delicate whites, full bodied reds and of course Marsala show the variation in climate and abilities of the various regions within the Island.
