Di Giovanna’s Grillo Vurria is an intense and fragrant Sicilian white with fresh and pleasantly fruity flavors. The grape was born from crossing two varieties, Catarratto and Moscato d’Alessandria. Grillo today is one of the most interesting native white grapes of the western Sicilian landscape.
Vinification in steel enhances its characteristic notes of citrus, tropical fruit and its pleasant freshness.
Vurria Grillo combines expressive intensity and Sicilian
elegance. At the end of the soft pressing and a 48-hour
decanting, the flower of the must ferments in steel tanks.
Before bottling, the wine matures for about 6 months on the
fine lees in steel tanks. It has a golden yellow color with
brilliant reflections. On the nose it opens up with aromas of
citrus fruits, honeydew melon, tropical hints and mineral
nuances. The flavor is intense on the mid-pallet with
expressive fruit notes and a savory finish.

Brothers Gunther & Klaus manage the family’s 56 hectare estate and winery where their hand crafted wines are made and bottled.
