Serramarrocco Grillo del Barone 2008

Member Review by Manoavino:

Grillo is an indigenous grape of Sicily used to make Marsala and finds it way into dishes like chicken Marsala and Zabaglione. It is also used as a blending grape but in this wine it stands beautifully alone. The wine has a beautiful golden color, the nose is bright with scents of lemon and bright sea air and whiffs of cumin and mint. You can feel the rich Sicilian sun just flowing out of the glass. Aging in steel preserves the purity of this wine. Wine-makers on the right. The first sip is dry, tart, lively on the tip of the tongue, then as it opens it has a woodsy/earthy quality, as it fills your mouth there is a crisp preserved lemon flavor with some stony minerality and a fruity finish with a bit of apricot that resonates in the back of the mouth. It is a great alternative to Pinot Grigio. Great wine for food. I will say it was a delightful wine and I am sure we will be having it again.
