Info about the wine
Grillo is originally native to the flat and calcareous soils around Trapani. Vito Lauria's plot is called Giardinello di Rapitalà and is located a good 50 kilometres further east on the gently rolling slopes around Alcamo at an altitude of 600 to 700 metres with a northern exposure. In addition to the long, even ripening, this allows for the optimal aromatic expression of the variety.
Info about the expansion
The grapes are pressed and macerate on the skins for 24 hours under temperature control. Fermented spontaneously in steel tanks, the wine matures on its lees for six months before being released for sale.
Rich, intense golden yellow with orange reflections.
The 2021 Grillo is already a revelation on the nose, with many citrus notes, sage, lemon balm and tart hints of grapefruit and lemon zest. An extremely animating summery fragrance with spicy hints, one is immediately curious about the first sip.
Spicy, refreshing, with lots of citrus on the tongue. A truly invigorating wine, pleasantly dry, alternating between fruit, animating acidity and fine astringency in the long finish. Perfect companion to Italian-inspired cuisine. Spectacular price-value ratio!
