Grillo – Cavallo delle Fate

Vintage 2019

An ancient grape variety, a cross between Moscato and Catarratto, results in a wine with a concentrated and complex aroma. It’s cultivated at Regaleali on the hills next to Case Vecchie. We produce it by blending grapes from different harvest periods: the part from the early harvest, for freshness and hints of minerals; the part from the later harvest gives it structure.
