GRILLODORO

One of a kind sweet wine in the Sicilian scene, Grillodoro is a rarity, being the only “noble rot” wine produced on the island. It is a passito wine obtained from a late harvest of overripe Grillo grapes, characterized by the attack of Botrytis Cinerea, the so-called Noble rot, which occur in our vineyard overlooking the Mediterranean. The peculiar position of the rows favors the development of Botrytis, since it exposes the grapes to the alternation of humidity, generated by the sea, sun and breeze, a very rare phenomenon that makes our Grillodoro a very precious nectar. Hence the highly symbolic name of our passito, which recalls the gold of the Sicilian sun bottled for a few and refined connoisseurs.
