Grapes were harvested the first week of September, cold macerated for 24 hours to extract maximum aromatics, gently pressed and cold fermented at 55° F/12° C for 15 days, and then simply aged for 6 months in concrete tanks.
The pretty aromatics of this wine make it an adept partner for crudo, white fish, and even spicy food.
Made with certified organic grapes.

DANIELE SOTTILE SOMMELIER

"Warmth that heats up, heating the heart, heat that makes you fall in love, the southern sun that heats the soul up and lights the thoughts."

THE SUN

It is it, the sun that lights up within the glass so as to shine like the gold grape maturing at the right time giving away a golden and magic reflection. Clear and clean, it tempts us to smell it without having to wait.

THE MEDITERRANEAN

Typical Mediterranean smell: warm and white fruits with peach, pear and citrus notes prevailing. Some tropical notes like banana and mango.

FRESHNESS

At the first sip, it is its personality that catches your attention.
The land, the human hand, the care and the willingness to create…well.
On the mouth, it’s warm and buttery. Full notes and full bodied. The second sip brings freshness deriving from its clearness already experienced by the appearance and smell.

RICH IN STRUCTURE

Best food pairing being seafood and meat. Rich in structure and aromas. Fish with side vegetables, such as sword fish in potato crust with sautéed courgettes and aromas. Otherwise, a risotto with soft or medium cheese like toma piemontese.

The beauty of colors is that from the first sight we remember them. A yellow that recollects an unforgettable memory.

THE GRAPE AND THE LAND

TRAPANI・SICILIA・ITALIA

Grillo is a relatively recent indigenous grapes from the island of Sicily. It is the child of Zibibbo and Cataratto Bianco Lucido and was originally created to make extremely high quality Marsala wine. It has since gained immense popularity as a dry still white made in a variety of styles. We opt for the most aromatic expression from a vineyard at 380m above sea level with lean marine clay soil. Located at the base of Montagna Grande, it is blessed with perfect growing conditions for the style Grillo we were hoping for.

TEH SOIL

My Grillo is made with a variety of vine planted on clayey calcareous soil.
The soil represents a fundamental element of viniculture. It is no coincidence that the grape variety I plant, especially their root system, was chosen based on this factor.
The clayey calcareous soil gives life to vines of high quality. It is ideal for viniculture as it contains high quantities of limestone, marne, shist and clay. Limestone derives from the decomposition of organisms wrapped in a calcareous skeleton or shell that produce sediments through their mineralization.
