Rupe Secca Grillo Sicilia DOC

Intense bouquet and lovely palate of citrus and tropical fruit flavors and refreshing acidity.
This wine is perfect for drinking on its own as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to seafood.

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 hand-picked, employing various canopy 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.
