Famiglia Roccaperciata Grillo 2021 (Sicilia, Italy)
Grillo—meaning “cricket” in Italian (although nobody seems to have a clue as to why)—has a marquee spot in Sicily’s wine history. For centuries, it was the flagship grape in Marsala, until preference shifted towards Catarratto for its widespread availability. Nowadays, you can find Grillo in a wide variety of Sicilian wines, including this lively monovarietal number which we think drinks like a slightly fuller-bodied Pinot Grigio.
We get fresh acidity, zesty citrus buds, and stone fruit on the nose and palate, with an enthralling and luxurious velvety richness in spite of its light body. Say “Hello” to Grillo!
Food Ideas: Ricotta-stuffed squash blossoms, clam linguine al limone, Spanish ham with melon, aligot with duck confit
