Firriato Altavilla Della Corte Grillo 2014

$16.99

Here's a terrific interpretation of Sicily's unique white wine grape, Grillo from the fine Firriato estate. Their 2013 Grillo offers up pretty aromas and flavors of lemon zest, orange blossom, and grilled pineapple. A round, medium-bodied, wine with plenty of citrusy snap on the finish and just a hint of saline minerality. Delicious on its own and a great match for grilled or fried calamari!

This wine loaded with minerality. The lemon-lime and “wet rocks” notes really are appealing. There is also a sense of dried apricot that comes through. On the palate, the acidity is fresh and razor-sharp and the minerals make an even stronger push. I even pick up a note of the sea in there, but that happens every time I drink Sicily. It may be a trick of the vine. Pair this with shrimp scampi, sautéed calamari or escargot for a real treat.
