Description

Di Giovanna’s Grillo Vurria is an intense and fragrant Sicilian white with fresh and pleasantly fruity flavors. The grape was born from crossing two varieties, Catarratto and Moscato d’Alessandria. Grillo today is one of the most interesting native white grapes of the western Sicilian landscape.
Vinification in steel enhances its characteristic notes of citrus, tropical fruit and its pleasant freshness.
Vurria Grillo combines expressive intensity and Sicilian elegance. At the end of the soft pressing and a 48-hour decanting, the flower of the must ferments in steel tanks.
Before bottling, the wine matures for about 6 months on the fine lees in steel tanks. It has a golden yellow color with brilliant reflections. On the nose it opens up with aromas of citrus fruits, honeydew melon, tropical hints and mineral nuances. The flavor is intense on the mid-pallet with expressive fruit notes and a savory finish.

Color Bright golden yellow
Aroma Fruity and mineral, of citrus fruits, fresh yellow fruit and sea water
Flavour Fresh, citrusy, mineral, with good persistence.
