750ml Sicilian Grillo White wine from Feudo Maccari.

Feudo Maccari Grillo from Sicily is fresh and lightly floral on the nose with savoury, nutty notes. The palate has crisp, citrus flavours with riper stone fruit characters on the textured mid-palate. It is a subtle and multi-layered wine with immediately appealing freshness and fruit leading to a taut, savoury, mineral finish.

The Grillo vines at Feudo Maccari are of average age twenty years, and grow south-facing, at just 80m above sea level and this region has extremely fertile volcanic soils, as indicated by the fertile lemon and olive groves, carob trees and flowering almonds. It is here that the existing Alberello (bush training) plantings of Nero d’Avola and Syrah dating back to the early ‘80s (around 50 ha) were added to – with eighteen hectares of Grillo planted in 2002 after extensive trials to find the most suitable whites for the region’s volcanic and limestone soils.

The grapes for the Feudo Maccari Grillo undergo temperature-controlled fermentation and maturation in stainless steel ready for early drinking when the wine is freshest.

Delicious with light salads and pasta dishes.
