Grillo

Sicilia DOC

A 100% Grillo, an authentic and identifying interpretation of the main vine of Western Sicily, grown on the vineyards of the hilly countryside of Gibellina, 300 meters above sea level. Manual harvest at the end of August, soft pressing and light maceration in contact with the skins, to express the full aromatic potential. Finally, aging in stainless steel for three months, with a further two in the bottle. Il Grillo from the “I Contemporanei” line is characterized by a complex bouquet of tropical fruit and Mediterranean citrus fruits. The sip flows pleasantly, with a slightly savory finish that tickles the palate.

Sicilia DOC

White clay 350 - 500 meters a.s.l.

Characteristic of the hills of the Belìce Valley, the white earth is of medium compactness and has a very high component of limestone and gypsum, which originates from the numerous chalky-sulphiferous formations present in the area. The dry microclimate with good water retention enhances the typical minerality of the soil in this area, making it ideal terrain for the cultivation of autochthonous white varietals such as Grillo, Zibibbo, Inzolia, Catarratto and Grecanico.
