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.
