Le Casematte Grillo IGP
100% Grillo. Bright straw yellow in color. The nose boasts notes of white- and yellow-fleshed fruit, floral aromas of mimosas and chamomile, mineral aromas and Mediterranean herbs. On the palate, the wine is fresh and tangy with pleasant fruit and a long, invigorating finale heightened by lively citrus notes.
“The company is deeply rooted in the territory and its history but also values the needs of contemporary wine production.”
