Di Giovanna Vurria Grillo


“A serious Grillo is an uncommon find, being Western Sicily’s most planted white grape and best known for Marsala production, it is often planted for bulk growth creating a lovely and endlessly quaffable table white. This Grillo, however, is on a different level. With yields reduced, farmed carefully on volcanic tuff at high elevations and hand harvested when perfectly ripened, the results are otherworldly. On the nose you are surprised by a menagerie of notes not commonly found in concert: various melons, crispy snap pea, nectarines and apricots, and fennel fronds and seeds. When it hits the palate its rocking acidity testifies to its situation over a half kilometre above sea level, drenched in notes of lemon drop, white table grapes, brooding blood orange and blood orange zest, seashells, hint of nori. This is everything one hopes for from Sicily — wines that will broaden the scope of flavour and experience.” – Vino al Vino
