From Sicily, this white wine is 100% Grillo, a lovely varietal that is indigenous to Sicily. Aged four months in steel tanks rather than oak gives this wine an unparalleled crispness. light in color, Zagra presents a white flower bouquet of citrus fruit and wild rose on the nose. On the palate, the wine offers juicy apricots, peaches and jasmine. Fresh and dry, the wine is well structured with notable acidity and balance and a sting multi dimensional finish. The wine is palate rolling and can even take on a bit of the hot!
