Viviri Grillo 2019

Tenuta Rapitalà

Terroir: The Rapitalà Grillo is selected from vineyards sitting between 900 and 1300 feet, high on the slopes of the Rapitalà estate. Vines are trained using the traditional Guyot system in soils made up of clay, small pebbles and sand.

Vinification: Grapes are harvested in mid-August, slightly before reaching ripeness in order to retain a balance between sugar levels and acidity. To preserve freshness the grapes are pressed, fermented and aged in temperature controlled stainless steel vats.

Rapitala Grillo is an excellent choice with light pastas, vegetables, shellfish and grilled white meats.

    "Delicately scented, this has light aromas evoking Mediterranean herb, citrus and hawthorn. Savory and refreshing, the vibrant palate features ripe white stone fruit, Meyer lemon and saline notes alongside crisp acidity."
