Grillo: Used for decades as blending wine, Grillo today has been revaluated thanks to the modern vinification techniques which enhanced its potential.

Born from a cross between Catarratto and Zibibbo, it is characterized by large grapes with a thick transparent peel of a golden yellow color. From vinification process it is obtained a surprisingly fresh wine with a complex fruit and floreal scent and flavor.
