Grillo is the illustrious grape of Sicily and here it is produced from chalky, south-facing
vineyards from the southwestern part of the island. Here in these sun-drenched
vineyards, the highest standards are attained through the use of innovative
technology and the careful process of mapping the terroir according to the weather
patterns, harvesting time, soils and vine age. The grapes undergo a sensory analysis
and are hand harvested at the optimum maturity levels, according to the terroir and
microclimate of the vineyard. They are then harvested into 20kg containers, to
prevent the grapes from being prematurely crushed. The vineyards are made up of
distinct soil and climate conditions and range from sea-level up to 700 metres above
The grapes were handpicked at their optimum maturity and then vinified in small
stainless steel tanks to retain the freshness and purity of fruit of the Grillo variety. A soft
pressing of the must took place at 12°C for 24 hours, followed by fermentation at
16°C with selected yeasts. The wine rested in tank for four months with yeast contact
imparting a richness to the texture whilst preserving all the aromatics.
