Il Grillo di Santa Tresa Vino Spumante Brut
Top quality Sicilian fizz made from 100% Grillo grapes. Surprising? Yes, it is, as it’s particularly fine and fresh, with great balance, spectacular fruit and a refreshing zingy burst of acidity. Move over Prosecco!
This highly individual fully sparkling Sicilian wine offers an enchanting bouquet of wild spring flowers, nectarine and white peach. A keen citrus edge adds to its vitality and balance. More weight and concentration than similarly priced Prosecco, this clean, bright fruited sparkling Grillo is testament to the dedication and skills of the Girelli family. A new frontier for Sicily.
Recommended by Olly Smith in the Daily Mail, ‘Buzzing bubbly to pop for an aperitif. Pair with fish and chips, a fish finger sandwich or fritto misto.’ February 2018
Jane MacQuitty – The Times, ‘The light, tongue-tingling apple and lemon-edged Il Grillo di Santa Tresa is an Italian triumph‘ January 2016
Wine of the Week – The Independent, ‘Bored with Prosecco? Try this: made carefully and organically in Sicily from Grillo, the grape used to make the islands’ fabled Marsala sweet wine and some decent whites, this is a revelation. Dry, a very pure fruit taste and a clean, refreshing acidity. Lovely with canapés and fishy starters.‘ Terry Kirby, August 2016
