"Altavilla della Corte" Grillo 2021 - Firriato

But how good are the autochthonous wines, whites and reds, grown in Sicily? A lot, without a doubt. Like this Grillo, grown on the Borgo Guarini estate, which fully expresses the peculiarities of its terroir of origin. The hilly climate, with its greater temperature swings than in the coastal area, gives these grapes a richer and more intense aromatic dowry. Grillo, then, is a grape variety on the rise in Sicilian oenology that the Firriato winery makes the most of thanks to superbly careful processing. Once in the winery, the grapes are soft-pressed and quickly fermented at a controlled temperature. At the end of the transformation, then, the wine remains in slow maturation on its noble lees, or "sur lie", in stainless steel tanks for a period of no less than 3 months. Then, after bottling, it remains to rest in the cellar for about 4 months before being finally put on the market. Intense straw yellow, the nose is reminiscent of typical Mediterranean aromas, with notes of fresh and intense citrus fruits that meet with delicious nuances of almonds and melons. Delicately complex, it is a champion of aromaticity. To be uncorked, without hesitation, right from aperitif time. Difficult, if not impossible, to be disappointed!

Among Sicily's most representative wineries is undoubtedly Firriato. Modern in conception, style and marketing, Firriato was born from the idea of a visionary entrepreneur from Trapani, Salvatore Di Gaetano, who has always been flanked by his charming wife Vinzia, who for years also represented the winery's public image in the world. It was the 1980s and Sicilian wine was about to experience its golden age, its renaissance, as someone wrote in the past. Today, almost 40 years later, the Firriato winery is a solid reality, based in Paceco, between Trapani and Erice, with vineyards scattered in different areas of Sicily. In fact, it owns around 320 hectares of vines, divided into no less than seven different estates, including one on the slopes of Mount Etna and one on the island of Favignana. If in the countryside the strictest respect for nature reigns, in the cellar it is technology that helps the oenologists make the most of each variety worked, whether native or international. The result is wines that have won awards from critics all over the world and are sought after by wine enthusiasts, year after year.
