“…with the passing of time, this land has conquered me more and more every day, and I grew so fond of it that I eventually decided to follow in my grandfather's and my father's footsteps, the ancestors who understood that viticulture could be a form of income and livelihood for their families. This strong and generous land has always been suited to viticulture and my love for it brought me to learn the art of winemaking.”
To recap from a previous story on Grillo:
Grillo, one of Sicily’s best known grapes, is found throughout western Sicily and is noted for its citrus flavors, sweetness and mild acidity. Due to the grape’s high sugar levels, it is ideal for the production of fortified wines. And now because of the innovation of new winemakers, Grillo has a wide range of styles, from crisp and savory, to structured and mature.
Il Coro has longer contact with the skins during fermentation and is aged in oak and acacia barrels for six months. Whereas, Parlante is soft pressed, has less skin contact and is aged in stainless steel tanks and in the bottle.
