Lovely restrained expression of Grillo from Western Sicily. This white wine is medium bodied, textured, saline, fresh and very moreish. Lovely herbal complexity, soft and pleasant aromatic profile.
Valdibella is a cooperative project, working with grapes from 10 growers
in the Camporeale region. They are all organic at the very least, though the Valdibella ethos pushes all their members towards a biodiverse and regenerative agriculture model, using no tillage in the vines where possible. This also means growing vines alongside olives, almonds, figs, pomegranates, etc, and close to natural areas, woodland, ponds, and fallow hedges thereby creating a more stable and balanced agro-ecosystem. The Grillo for this wine comes from three growers, the bulk which is from one of their vineyards with the most amount of lime in the soil.
