History and features of  Grillo

The Grillo grape variety probably originated in Puglia, from where it would spread, after the invasion of phylloxera, in Sicily, initially in the Marsala area and poinelle other provinces of the island. It is also known by the synonym Riddu. Il Grillo has been for centuries exclusive of the Marsala territory and has particular importance in the production of Marsala DOC which is one of the most widely used vines, often together with Inzolia and Catarratto. But the best Marsala wine is obtained from the Grillo grape, whose characteristic is the ease to oxidize and the ability to become high-grade wine, sometimes exceeding 15/16 °. The Grillo grape then has the vocation, unusual for a white wine, to be particularly prone to aging. Vinified in purity and with the aid of cryomaceration it can give wines of great organoleptic, sapid, perfumed and with a good potential for longevity, superior to all Sicilian whites except those of Etna.
