Grappoli del Grillo Riserva BIO 2022 Marco De Bartoli Wines

Grappoli del Grillo was born from a brilliant intuition of Marco De Bartoli. In 1990 with the native Grillo grapes of the Marsala area used to produce until then only Marsala wine, De Bartoli decided to produce a dry white table wine. Thus was born the first table wine made from 100% Grillo grapes. This austere vine on the sandy soils of Contrada Samperi and thanks to the proximity of the sea gives a grillo wine with iodine and fruity notes, of great elegance and structure. Aged in French oak to preserve its aromas, Grappoli del Grillo evolves unexpectedly in the bottle, developing unrepeatable and always different aromas.
