Grape Varieties :
The indigenous Grillo grapes are grown on 5 year old vines located in Monte Pietroso and Marchesa, Monreale. They are harvested in the early part of September by hand.
On arrival at the winery, the grapes are soft pressed for approximately 5 hours at 14°c. After pneumatic pressing and cold decantation, the must is fermented at 18°-20°C. There follows a period in stainless steel tank on the fine lees for 4 months and successive fining before bottling.
