Artigiano Grillo 2011

Vintage: 2011

Style: Dry white

Country: Italy

Region: Sicily  

 

Overview: Grillo is not a variety that I am overly familiar in so I won’t rattle on for too long. It’s a variety that is native to Sicily and is quite delicate and neutral. This wine reminds me of those great value Italian table wines that won’t take the world by storm with their complexity but are a great drink for the price.

 

Tasting note: Soft aromas of fennel, straw and talc. A savoury palate, with a zesty acid, lemon, lime and finishes with delicate talc. Fresh and simple.

 

Final Say: Well worth trying if only to say you have tried Grillo as a variety. $12-$16

 

Score: 16 out of 20
