This special bottling of Grillo sees Nino going back to his roots. His very first wine was raised in glass demijohns and he has often said he considers it to be one of the best wines he’s ever made. The fruit here comes from thirty year old vines near his cantina planted over calcareous soils. The grapes are pressed directly and fermentation and ageing takes place in the glass vessels, where the wine rests for nine months. The result is a Grillo unlike any other we have tried. Compact and elegant, it is a wine of great clarity and focus, with an intense, salty mineral and pithy citrus at its core. Available only in magnum in tiny quantities, this is a real collectors item for lovers of Nino’s wine.
