Grappoli del Grillo – Grillo Reserve Sicily DOC
Grappoli del Grillo is the first white wine that Marco De Bartoli decided to produce. The adventure of this wine began in 1990, at a time when Grillo, an austere and little-known grape variety, was used exclusively for the production of Marsala. This wine originates in Contrada Fornara Samperi, in the Marsala area, where a rigorous manual selection of the grapes is performed. Fermentation takes place with native yeasts at a controlled temperature, initially in stainless steel tanks, and ends in French oak barrels where it ages for 12 months. The result is a wine that can guarantee intensely fruity aromas, but always elegant, with a bitter, decisive, and persistent return. It is a Sicilian wine that contains all the values of De Bartoli: a sincere and potent man, who loves his land and shows it with his high-quality production.
