Grillo Sicilia, Rupe Secca, 2019
This dry white wine has an intense bouquet and lovely palate of citrus and tropical fruit flavours with refreshing acidity.
The grapes for this wine 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. The grapes are hand-picked, employing various canopy management (vine training) techniues due to the fact that the bunches hit the peak of maturity in mid-September. Following destemming , the grapes are gently pressed with a pneumatic press. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures 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.
