Region: Sicily, Itay
Grape Varieties: Grillo
Nino Barraco is located in the north-west of Sicily, in Marsala. Nino is a true craftsman of wine, his idea starts from the assumption that his wines must speak of the territory, the climate, the hand of the man who produces it, be recognizable for his personality and to reach those goals we must avoid standardization, technical interventions and rely only on the variability of nature.
This Grillo is from a vineyard that sits on a sand dune, right by the Mediterranean. The grapes are picked around a month earlier than his regular Grillo to retain freshness, acidity and verve. They spend just a day on skins, followed by a short élevage in concrete. It was bottled the following April with no additions and is a little more open and fruit forward than usual, with delicate flavors of sea salt and lemon zest.
