Grillo Sicilia DOC 2020 - La Valle della Luna

Grillo, also known as 'Riddu', has a fairly recent history and can be considered the most modern of the white grape varieties grown in Sicily. The result of a cross between Catarratto bianco and Zibibbo, it was developed by Baron Antonio Mendola of Favara. It was in 1874. Grillo can give rise to wines of great depth, savoury and fragrant. Just like this Sicilia DOC proposed by La Valle della Luna. Vinified and aged in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature, this interesting local white wine is a beautiful straw yellow colour, with a delicate bouquet that directly recalls the scents of fresh fruit, pear and melon above all. Then herbaceous and floral notes. In the mouth it is a medium-bodied wine. Fresh, thanks to its natural acidity and pleasant mineral content. A wine of good persistence and complexity, it also reveals a discreet ageing potential. Ideal with fish and shellfish hors d'oeuvres, it also goes well with first and second courses with fish and vegetable sauces.

La Valle della Luna is not just a winery. It is 'A life project', as we read on the home page of their website. Valle della Luna is a very young agricultural company located in Partanna, in the Trapani area, born with the idea of creating not only a winery, but rather a life project that could help the local economy. Started in 2013 with 30 hectares, today the company can count on about 60 hectares of property where the most valuable native Sicilian vines are cultivated, both white grapes, such as Grillo, Catarratto, Zibibbo and Grecanico, and red grapes, and in particular Nero d'Avola and Nerello Mascalese. But also the great internationals, such as Syrah, which has found an ideal habitat in Sicily. Despite its few years of existence, La Valle della Luna is already known locally as a special reality, with a love of life and nature.
