Starting with gentle yellow-flower aromas, then simple butter-and-almond fruit on the palate, this powerful white quickly builds to a real boldness of character that shows off all its Sicilian sunshine. A spike of lime and black pepper gives it a real kick at the finish.
About this bottle: Grillo is the darling white grape of Sicily. For this wine it is harvested from chalky, sea-facing vineyards on the southwestern part of the island. Winemakers Carlo Caprarotta and Mattia Filippi put together their local knowledge and their love of the vivid, fresh whites of northern Italy, to create this wonderfully focussed, intense white that really takes a grip of the palate. It needs no oak embellishment, but gains richness from four months yeast contact after fermentation.
