Grillo Sicilia DOC


Grillo Sicilia DOC

Canapi Grillo has intense and typical bouquet, citron and tropical fruity palate, with perfectly balanced freshness. This wine is perfect for drinking on its own cold.

Grapes: 100% Grillo
Vineyard area: the grapes are selected from the best vineyards in the Marsala area. This vineyard is one of the most characteristic and typical of this area, with a predominance of white grapes. Vine training is by traditional Spalliera system.

Harvest: the grapes are handpicked, employing various canapy management (vine training) techniques due to the fact that the bunches hit the peak of maturity, in mid September.

Vinification: following destemming, the grapes are gently pressed with a pneumatic press. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperature not exceeding 18°C for approximately 3 weeks. Malolactic fermentation does not take place so that the wine retains all of the grape’s natural acidity.
