ITALY - Fondo Antico Grillo Parlante
Winery : Fondo Antico
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.
