Grillo Sicilia

Italian wine is like a box of chocolates..(stop Forrest!)

Sicily, in particular, frequently surprises me.  I came upon an IGT-labeled wine made from the Grillo grape.  Grillo is a white varietal commonly used in Marsala (which I hear is making a comeback..?).  For 9-bucks this wine was full of character and mighty unique to boot.  And whenever a wine can make me say, “Wohoo!” for under ten dollars, I’m happy.

AranciogrilloThe Skinny

Feudo Arancio Grillo Sicilia IGT, ’03 ($9)

  • Lemon gold in color with a noticeably bright sheen/hue
  • Scents of lemon zest, cucumber, Romaine, and white pepper
  • In the mouth Grillo is quite hefty and viscous.  However, it’s got some spunky acidity to avoid falling flabby-fat.  Fresh flavors of lemon curd give way to a long pleasant finish

***.5 (3.5 stars out of 5)

Since this baby was so zesty-crisp, I performed a little experiment:  I drank a portion on Sunday, vacuu-vin’d it and sipped the rest on Tuesday night.  It was still ever-so-fresh and tasty.  It worked very well with both pan-roasted pork loin and sautéed chicken.  Hooray for Sicily.  And check out Via Ritiro N.7 Diary for all your Sicilian cusine blogging needs.
