Marco De Bartoli - Grappoli Del Grillo 2020
This exquisite white wine from Sicily’s Marco De Bartoli winery is a sight to behold. Its golden straw colour is inviting and speaks to its bright and sunny origin in the Mediterranean. When brought to the nose, fragrant aromas of lemon zest, apple blossom, peach, and a vaguely tropical note of pineapple mingle together and make you dream of far away beaches and summer days. On the palate its delicate structure turns into a more expansive roundness with a creamy texture that envelopes delicious flavours of ripe stone fruit, citrus peel, apricot, quince and a hint of mineral salinity. Its medium-bodied complexity is balanced with a bright and vibrant acidity that cleanses the palate, making you crave for another sip. A great companion for seafood-based recipes with a Mediterranean influence, this well-rounded Grillo would also be the ideal choice for outdoor gathering and celebrations on balmy days.
