ZollaSolare – Grillo DOP Sicilia
Persuasive, floral, mineral, Grillo lives only Sicily’s north-west. It was once all destined to the Marsala “solere”; now talks about its land with heat and flavor as an important white for fish pairings.
12,5 % vol.
In the “contrada” Costa di Bisaccia, on a hill of dolomitic origin with a good amount of sand from the weathering of calcareous tufa. A vineyard of 1.68 hectares with Guyot training (6,000 vines per hectare), exposed north-east at about 380 meters of altitude.
Traditional, in steel containers. Bottling in June after a simple cold stabilization.
Service and pairing
It should be served at 10-12°C. For its sapidity, floral aromas of great finesse and mineral persistence it is the perfect wine for important dishes of fish.
