Terebinto Grillo, Planeta 

Italy – 2019  

13.5% ABV  

Tasting Note: Aromatic, rounded white from a native Sicilian variety that's full of tropical fruit: apricots, lychees and pineapples jostle for prominence on the tongue. 

Food Matching: Raw fish, pasta with sea urchins, fried vegetables and fish. Also good with creamy white cheese as well as vegetables with dips. 

Vineyard: From Planeta's vineyards in Gurra at 75m above sea level on lime and chalk soils, planted to a density of 5,000 vines per hectare. 

Vinification: After destalking and soft pressing, the must is decanted at a low temperature and ferments at 15°C. When fermentation is complete, maturing on the lees for 6 months in stainless steel vats where a bâtonneur keeps the lees in suspension.
