It’s very unusual to find a white wine made appassimento. That’s what makes this plush Sicilian white so exciting. It’s made by letting some grapes dry out on the vine and by drying a portion of the grapes in the sun. It’s best known in making decadently-rich reds like Amarone – but it’s less well known that the tradition of making wines this way also has a rich Sicilian heritage. For centuries, island winemakers have used appassimento to make sweet dessert wines. But this – an appassimento Grillo – is something entirely new. Grillo is a wonderfully aromatic – and distinctly Italian – white grape. It’s the perfect base for this style of winemaking. Honeyed and dried fruity, it also has the fresh zing of grapefruit. Not to mention, it’s really delicious with Moroccan-spiced rice dishes.

Superb! A lovely, flavourful, creamy dry white.

Light to medium on the nose with defined hints of orange. On the palate it is soft and medium bodied. The apricot and pineapple, almost with a hint of honey, sweetness is matched by the acidity to make a wine that you can drink on its own.

I like fuller bodied Chardonnay and Viognier's but this is one of the outstanding whites that I've tasted over the past 6 months. Beautifully balanced and flavoursome. Very rewarding. Will definitely purchase again.

This is a delicious wine.  I’m not usually a big fan of Italian whites but the flavour here is huge.  What a discovery.  Thanks to a certain weekend tv breakfast show for the recommendation.  Bought to try when on offer.  Wish I’d bought more!

Another winner here!   Fabulous white - with many complex flavours to enjoy. Quite a 'rich' mouthfeel - not too sharp
