Grape Variety
Grillo is an ancient cross between Catarratto and Zibibbo, considered indigenous to this area of ​​Sicily. Grillo wines are generally characterized by high acidity and noteworthy aromatic intensity, very persistent even in the aftertaste. It manages to transmit flavor to the wines.
Terroir
The vineyards are in Mazara del Vallo (South-West of Sicily): 110 hectares of vineyards overlooking the sea with a very slight slope. The soil is limestone, of karst origin. The breezes from the sea are continuous. Due to the effect of the sea, during the ripening period there are important thermal inversions between day and night. The vineyards are located within a WWF nature reserve.
Uomo
The Sala family inherited the plot, once the dowry of one of the great Marsala cellars, from their great-grandmother Dora. Michele, third generation, has maintained the prevalence of cultivation of Grillo. He supported the microclimatic characteristics, favoring plants with a north-south row direction to keep the bunches in the shade for a few hours.
Vinification and finishing
Soft pressing, cold maceration for a slow extraction of the perfumes. “White” vinification cycle with temperature control. Aging in steel tanks for at least two months.
Tasting notes
Straw yellow, very bright, with greenish reflections. Intense aroma with notes of pineapple, white peach and passion fruit. Full and soft taste, fruity well balanced with acidity. Long and persistent aftertaste of white pulp fruit.
