Region: Sicily, Italy
Vinification: After a manual harvest at the beginning of September, the grapes were destemmed, crushed and loaded into stainless steel tanks, where they macerated with their skins for six days. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts, without additions or temperature control.
Aging: After pressing, the wine was aged for seven months on its lees in chestnut barrels.
Fining or Filtering: None
Notes from the Importer: Alessandro Viola’s 2020 Sinfonia di Grillo has a cloudy, nearly amber color, with an intense nose, filled with aromas of bruised apple, peach, cinnamon and basil. On the palate, it’s medium-bodied, savory and structured, with notes of yellow-fleshed fruit, spices, herbs and some iron-like minerality. Pairs perfectly with any dish that has umami flavors.
