 Crisp & zesty style, light & fresh with hints of rich, tropical fruit, plenty of body, some richness and some complexity. There's an awful lot to like here and it's pretty addictive!

Grillo grapes are grown in the top white grape producing area around Marsala.

Viticulture

Grillo grapes are grown in the top white grape-producing area around Marsala.

The Grillo grapes are hand-picked several times over, some when they have reached the peak of maturity, then others after they have been left on the vines until they have lost the required amount of weight through drying.

Vinification

We employ various different methods of canopy management, in order to handle the fact that the grapes hit the peak of maturity in mid-September, when the Sicilian sun is still very strong. Hand-picked in mid-September. Fermentation takes place over a period of about 2 weeks at a controlled temperature not exceeding 18 °C. In order to retain as much of the grapes’ natural acidity as possible, we do not carry out Malolactic fermentation.
