Coste al Vento'Grillo DOC Sicilia - 2020
“Costa” is a Sicilian word for hillside, where the wind blowing from the Mediterranean Sea brings minerals to the soil and refreshment to vines and people. Grillo is one of the most interesting Sicilian grape variety. It was created in 1873 by agronomist Antonio Mendola by crossing two traditional native grapes: Catarratto and Zibibbo. Here I grow the Grillo, a native intriguing variety that embodies the inner character of Menfi's terroir with its unmistakable style and unique charm. Full bodied orange wine! It has a bright gold color, made even livelier by the typical green shades of the grapes' skin. To the nose, complex and elegant aromas of white ripe fruit merge into herbal scents of oregano, mint and sage that stand out against rich layers of nettle and fine green tea. Its full palate is enriched by a mineral and vibrant aftertaste. Coste del Vento ferments in amphoras. Thanks to the clay’s characteristics - moderate oxygen exchange, optimal thermal insulation and zero electric conductivity - this wine has a delicate color extraction and a vibrant palate.
