Feudo Maccari Grillo 2011

Feudo Maccari Grillo 750ml 2011     
Sku: 1791190*

Alberello trained (bush trained) vines are an average 20 years old, and have been planted with a southern exposure at 250 feet elevation, situated about one mile from the sea. To encourage aromatic depth and flavor complexity, grape yields are low: 3.75 tons/acre. In the spring, the vines are pruned to one bud per plant, and in June/July, a green harvest is performed to eliminate lesser grapes. Twenty days prior to harvest, the vines go through an additional cluster thinning, or a selection of the best grapes in the bunch.

Tasting notes
With a straw yellow and gold color, the wine shows intriguing and intense floral aromas, with notes of citrus, peach, almonds and sweet grass. Quite full in the mouth, the wine has rich flavors with depth, balance and freshness.

Rating
 Wine Advocate 88 points (Feb 2013)
The 2011 Grillo caresses the palate with yellow-fleshed fruits and expressive floral notes. There is a level of energy and tension in the 2011 that separates it from the vast majority of its peers. Expressive and layered through to the finish, the 2011 is also an excellent value. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2014.

Food pairing
Pairs well with seafood, delicately flavored first courses, white meats and grilled fish. This wine stands up well to spices, especially Asian.
