Baglio di Grìsi
The grapes are hand-picked and then delicately destemmed and crushed. The cooled and softly pressed must is transferred to stainless steel tanks where alcoholic fermentation takes place at a temperature of 13°C. After 30-40 days of slow fermentation, the resulting wine is racked and kept on lees for at least a month to enhance its volume and structure. The wine is aged in steel for four months followed by two months’ bottle-ageing.
Among the green hills of Western Sicily, a few kilometres from the ancient Norman town of Monreale, the Di Lorenzo family cultivates one of the native Sicilian grapes par excellence, Grillo. This bright yellow wine with pale greenish highlights is made from a careful selection of bunches of grapes. The bouquet conveys hints of citrus fruits, crusty bread and fleshy yellow fruit such as apricots. The taste is fruity and fresh, well-structured, with a well-balanced acidity and minerality.
