ITALY - Fondo Antico Grillo Parlante

Winery : Fondo Antico

$26.60 - $145.00
Fondo Antico Grillo Parlante has that rare quality for a white wine of being full bodied but also fresh. It opens up with fine florals, then richer apricot, complementing the smooth texture in the mouth. The finish is quite zesty too.

While Grillo is a classic Sicilian variety, its cultivation is not that old; DNA studies suggest it is a natural cross between (very dry) Cattaratto Bianco and Zibibbo. Fondo Antico is considered a top producer of grillo in Sicily.

Decanter Magazine 4 stars: 'White bouquet of flowers on the nose. Fresh herbs and peas are layered with melon and striking acidity loaded with minerals.'

Lowish in sulphur, modest 12.6% alcohol.
