Viviri Grillo DOC 2022

Tenuta Rapitalà

Terroir: The Rapitalà Viviri 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: Made with organic grapes, 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.

Additional Information

It is a sunny and fascinating wine with the intense aromatic charge of its aromas of white pulp fruit. The hilly altitude at which it is grown confers greater acidity to Grillo and therefore the wine is characterized by marked sapidity and minerality.

    The nose is a citrusy cocktail accompanying a well-composed charcuterie board, as lemon, grapefruit and a light florality mix with salted nuts and a peppery undertone. On the palate, potent acid emphasizes the citrus, but herbs join the salt to create a round, oily texture. Danielle Callegari
