2022 – Grillo 100%
Sicilia Denominazione di Origine Controllata
That which is forgotten is as though it never
came to pass. All that exists is reminiscence

The primordial concept. The archetype.
It is as it should be. The Grillo of
Cristo di Campobello.

Hand harvesting in small crates. After de-stemming and crushing, the temperature of the grapes is dropped to 8-10ºC for the maceration. A light pressing follows, after which the free-run wine is separated and decanted through the process of natural sedimentation at low temperature. Four months on the lees in temperature-controlled stainless steel tanks and at least three months in bottle.
“Intense aromas of yellow and white flowers that take on mineral notes, turning to citrus fruits, white peach, pear and green apple. Delicious now or can be cellared over 10 years.”
