This unique example of the native Sicilian Grillo come from the Di Giovanna family’s Paradiso and Gerbino vineyards in Sicily where soft rolling hills and a lower altitude produce very ripe and fruit driven grapes.
The grapes were hand picked, macerated for 8 hours temperature controlled. Fermented in stainless steel tank and left on the fine lees for 6 months with regular batonage.
The Grillo is comparable to Sauvignon Blanc, yet much more tropical and lacking in green notes.
An expressive bouquet of ripe ruby red grapefruit, pineapple and herbs leads to a rich yet bright mouthfeel with a noteable acidic core and notes of almonds. Very mineral from limestone rich soils.
Food Suggestions? This wine is a perfect match for chicken dishes. Pairs very well with vegetable based pasta, like zucchini & mushrooms with grated pecorino, and legume soups.
