Carolina Marengo Grillo
Price per bottle 0,75l
Grillo is perhaps Sicily’s lesser known grape variety, although it is certainly not inferior to other white grape varieties. Label drawn by Carolina Marengo.
A straw-yellow wine characterised by rich apple and pear notes, which render it instantly recognisable and appreciated. The taste is warm and dry, slightly tannic and displaying a citric aroma.
Feudi del Pisciotto has the new vineyards (33 hectares planted since 2002) situated at about 250 meters of altitude and 6 km from the sea as the crow flies. It benefits therefore of two climatic moderators: altitude where arrive the sea breezes, and the sea itself, a great compensator of the temperature. The vineyards of Feudi del Pisciotto have 50% of the red wine king of the island, the Nero d’Avola, and 50% of international red wines like Cabernet, Merlot, etc and two white wines Semeiloon and Gewuz Traminer, for an unusual Passito.
