Grillo Sicilia D.O.C. 2011

Tenuta Rapitala

Terroir: The Rapitala Grillo is selected from vineyards sitting between 900 and 1300 feet, high on the slopes of the Rapitala estate. Vines are trained using the traditional Guyot system in soils made up of clay, small pebbles and sand.

Vinification: Grapes are harvested in mid-August, slightly before reaching ripeness in order to retain a balance between sugar levels and acidity. To preserve freshness the grapes are pressed, fermented and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel vats.

Rapitala Grillo is an excellent choice with light pastas, vegetables, shellfish and grilled white meats.

    Fresh and tasty, delivering zesty white grapefruit, green melon and fine chalk notes that linger in the finish. Drink now.
