Grillo D.O.C. Sicilia

GRAPES: 100% Grillo DOC produced in the territory of Partinico, in the Alcamo DOC Bianco area at 300 meters above sea level.

VINIFICATION AND FINING: The grapes are hand-picked in 14 kg crates around the second half of September and softly-pressed in total absence of oxygen. The must is decanted cold and after its clarification, it is poured into French oak barrels where it ages for about two weeks. At the end of its fermentation, the wine is aged “sur lies” until March (for about 4-5 months) with weekly “battonage”.

ALCOHOL CONTENT: 13 % by vol.

WINE DESCRIPTION: Bright colour with straw yellow notes and greenish highlights. The nose reveals intensely fruity and delicately floral aromas with notes of apricot, white peach and yellow plum, harmonized and perfectly combined with mentholated scents of eucalyptus, basil, tomato leaves and green pepper. On the palate, it has a good balance with the right fullness, freshness and acidity, giving the wine an easy-drinking, sapid character and a prospective longevity. Serve at a temperature of 11 °C in average size stem glasses.
