Lower yields per hectare and a careful selection of the Grillo clusters already during the vine management phase are the secrets behind the production of this wine. Harvest occurs at night and only when all the clusters are fully ripe. In the case of this Grillo, a variety native to Sicily, the grapes exposed to the sun turn brownish due to the direct sunlight. This helps the grapes maintain their acidity intact and therefore preserve the typical freshness of the variety.Once harvested, the grapes are delicately pressed, and the must is left to clarify only for 36 to 48 hours. The wine is then subject to fermentation at controlled temperatures in stainless steel tanks, to preserve its freshness and minerality. Once fermentation is complete, the wine is left to rest on its lees until it is filtered and bottled.
Colour: deep straw yellow.
Bouquet: intense notes of tropical fruits like papaya, quince, and pineapple
Flavour: elegant and rich body bursting its intense fruit-forward character and freshness.
Ideal with pasta dishes featuring vegetable sauces, with fish and white meat entrées as well as shellfish. Also pleasant on its own.
