Grillo is a rare beast: a single grape that produces a perfectly balanced wine all by itself. The more you pay the more those delicious flavours intensify. The historic Rallo winery has stood on the beach in Marsala for over a century. While they still produce famous sweet wine, more recently their reputation has been forged by the quality of dry whites. Made from vines that are at least 30 years old, this fragrant, rich, unoaked wine is a vision of Sicily's future as a fine wine producer.
This wine hails from sunny Sicily, a region that could claim to have been invaded more times than just about any other. The Romans were unseated by the Vandals and the Goths moving in shortly afterwards. But it's also home to the Cosa Nostra, the infamous mafia crew. All of this is very exciting, but then so are the wines.
A delicious, full bodied Grillo layered with citrus fruits and tropical nuances. It must be said that Calvo is the fruit of 15 years research by Bruno, on the best plots in Sicily. Great when served chilled as a partner to seafood dishes.
For those who have not tried white Rioja (why not?!) - you are in for a treat! Hand-crafted and with a combination of flavour profiles that are simply genius, it's a wonder how this family-owned winery managed it!
