Family and Friends 2022

Grillo is a very versatile variety that, thanks to its characteristics, has good aging potential and lends itself to different vinifications. For this reason, we tried aging it in wood and drinking it in magnum bottles only with family and friends, who appreciated it very much. Given its great success, we then decided to launch it on the market as Family and friends in 2014. As a show of respect for Grillo and its versatility, we were inspired to make a soft, round and structured varietal wine that matures in both oak barrels and ovoid-shaped concrete tanks. This ovoid shape allows the wine a natural circular movement that adds important nuances to the final product. It is a bit smoky at first, but then notes of citrus, almonds and white flowers come through, followed by delicate spicy aromas of cinnamon and vanilla. In the mouth these flavors are confirmed, along with mineral notes given by the limestone soils. A full-bodied, deep white wine with a long, balanced finish.
Vintage Notes

The mild winter as always and an early spring started the 2021 viticultural season in Sicily. Harmonious and balanced vegetation development, the result of our attention to detail. Immediately after flowering, temperatures rose rapidly as early as June, regulated by constant winds cooling the vineyards and significant temperature ranges. The harvest began in late August without any particular advances in ripening. The grapes, the highest expression of quality, represent very well the varietal and terroir characteristics.
