Piantaferro Grillo, 2016
Grillo is one of the most promising native Sicilian grapes, which is still grown with the ancient small-tree method at a density of 6000 vines per hectare. The grapes are harvested by hand and softly pressed. The wine is pleasurably structured and one does not even notice its strength and alcohol content thanks to a splendid balance for a full-bodied wine.
This brilliant golden yellow Grillo is pleasant to taste with as the fresh taste of the wine shows a harmonious combination of acidity, mild alcohol content and persistent fruitiness. Calm short finish fascinates with its purity. Intense notes of ripe exotic and citrus fruits in the aroma of wine are accompanied by charming hints of spices and Mediterranean herbs. We recommend to drink with poultry, white meat, sea fish, seafood, soft cheeses, as well as with fruit.
