Fermentation was temperature controlled and the wine was then aged for several months on the fine lees in stainless stell tanks. There was no malolactic fermentation thus retaining all of the fresh acidity in the wine, something which is very important in such a hot climate. The grapes for this wine were selected from prime vineyard sites in the Marsala area of Sicily and Grillo is the most traditional variety to be planted here. Grapes were picked by hand and only the ripest bunches were selected.
Why we like this wine
The proximity to the coast of marsala's vineyards and this together with the ever-present sunshine makes organic farming easy to achieve. Great care has been taken to keep the pure fruit properties of the Grillo grape and it is quite unusual to find a true orgabic and certified wine at this price point. It's simply delicious to drink and is almost like having some sunshine in a glass.
