Grillo, grillo….from Julius Caesar to us!



(By Marina La Forgia) If you are used to buy the same kind of whites but you are somehow in the search of getting out of your comfort zone, I have the one for you! From Sicilian producer Casa Vinicola Natale Verga, here its 100% organic Grillo, one of the most interesting indigenous grapes from South of Italy! The legend says that this grape was the favourite of Julius Caesar….and eventually it can be also yours!

I liked this wine because it’s an authentic example of the variety. It offers a very unique and expressive bouquet with lots of herbal notes, citrus, almonds, grass and green apple. In the mouth, there is a hint of bitterness and a refreshing acidity, both giving a very interesting tasting experience in the palate. This uniqueness and rusticity is very appreciated if you look for a different white to wake all your senses up! It can perfectly match chicken, fishes and pasta with any savoury creamy sauce.
