Colosi Grillo '18

Colosi Grillo '18

Cantine Colosi produces this delicious wine from grapes planted on the volcanic island Salina, just off the coast of Sicily. Since 1984, the Colosi family has been farming vineyards, planted with indigenous varietals, both on the island and in Sicily. In order to help preserve and protect this small island, the winery is partially underground, while the other half is literally immersed in its vineyards. It's extremely hot here, so this aids immensely in temperature control.

While Colosi's winery is located in Salina, they are obtaining Grillo from its classic growing region of Marsala, in Eastern Sicily. Grillo is able to withstand the intense temperatures and dry farming, allowing it to root down and produce a rich, aromatic white. Grillo, while typically associated with Marsala production, is extremely lively and sapid when not fortified. It maintains ripe, intensely aromatic tones of tropical and stone fruit and blossoms with a salinous finish. This is a completely fresh and juicy island wine!
