Valle dell'Acate 'Zagra' Grillo
Origin: Sicily, Italy
Grape(s): 100% Grillo
2017 Valle dell'Acate Zagra Grillo featured in The New York Times article "20 Wines Under $20: Plenty of Variety and Not One Chardonnay" by Eric Asimov. He had this to say about this delicious wine:
"In recent years, I have seen more dry whites made from grillo, a grape once known as the backbone of sweet Marsala or for making big, blousy dry wines. This one — from various coastal vineyards in eastern Sicily — is young, fresh, floral and refreshing, with lingering earthy notes. Delightful."
