Santa Tresa hand harvest native Grillo grapes for this organic sparkling Sicilian wine. Soft pressing is followed by primary fermentation for 8-10 days in stainless steel tanks Secondary fermentation is in small stainless steel autoclaves at low temperatures with the slow-working yeasts creating elegant perlage and fresh aromas.
Il Grillo presents as pale straw coloured with golden flecks. Classically dry with fine, gentle bubbles and a fresh fruity nose showing delicate citrus and floral notes. On the palate the wine is very well balanced, gentle and soft with a refreshing burst of acidity and spectacular fruity notes. Try with tempura seafood or vegetables, fish dishes, or mild flavoured cheeses.
Founded in 1697, Santa Tresa is a 50 hectare estate in Vittoria, south east of Sicily, a place that has a 3,000 year culture of wine. Vineyards are at 24m above sea level and completely organically cultivated. Soils are of red sandy soil with clay and deeper layers of limestone. Sustainable water sources and natural fertiliser from Favino beans created on the estate.
