Feudo Arancio Grillo 2022


The famous, if rarely seen these days, wine known as Marsala was made from the Grillo variety. In Sicily, Acate in the province of Ragusa, Grillo is made as a fresh and aromatic white, perfect for summer drinking. Harvested at night followed by a controlled fermentation and then ageing for five months in stainless steel tanks, on lees, with regular bâtonnage. A lovely yellow green in colour. There are notes of florals, gooseberries, some tropical touches and citrus. This is a fresh and quite punchy style and decent length is on offer here. A soft texture, with bright acidity, it is attractive drinking now and over the next couple of years.
