Grillo wine, an italian white with personality
Grillo wine is another example of a grape variety lending its name to the exceptional Italian white wine it produces. Originally famous for its almost exclusive use in blending for the production of Marsala, today Grillo is more known in its purest form, and is able to stand alone.
Grillo wine offers singular character and is marked by a series of traits that make its uniqueness hard to replicate, pushing producers in the triangle that stretches between Trapani, Palermo and Agrigento in western Sicily to the top of their category.
Apart from maintaining freshness and balance in other Italian whites, Grillo wine is incredibly well suited to perfecting in wood, especially French oak, and with aging it develops surprising qualities. Vibrant straw yellow in color, the bouquet is verdant, floral with citrus notes finished by a rich, full body with just the right touch of acidity to complete its refined structure. This robust quality makes Grillo ideal for both meats and fish, in addition to soups and minestre. This Sicilian treasure is truly one of a kind.
