Tasting Notes: 100% Grillo. Beautiful floral and citric aromas like lemon and grapefruit. On the palate, the wine has fresh acidity and a soft mineral taste. Pair this wine with classic Mediterranean cuisine.
Aromas of white spring flowers, Mediterranean brush, citrus and tropical fruit waft out of the glass. On the tangy, totally delicious palate, bright acidity and a saline mineral vein accompany ripe honeydew, juicy orange slice, wild herb and a hint of white almond.~93 Points, Wine Enthusiast
