Family and Friends
Grillo is a very versatile variety whose characteristics make it well suited to aging. This is why Antonio Moretti Cuseri tried to age a small part in oak and egg-shaped concrete tanks, for a few close friends and family members who ended up really liking this new pure version. In fact, they like it so much they suggested adding it to the range.
Temperature-controlled fermentation and maceration, partly in egg-shaped concrete tanks and partly in small oak barrels for about 20 days.
Aging: partly in egg-shaped concrete tanks and partly in small oak barrels for at least 6 months
Aging in bottle: at least 6 months
Color: Crystal-clear yellow in color
Aromas: Notes of citrus, orange blossoms, honey, balsam herbs, light notes of ginger and vanilla with influences from the sea.
Flavor: Good structure, soft, full, and concentrated on the palate, with zesty minerality and wonderful freshness, resulting in a flavorful, persistent finish.
Pairings: Au-gratin seafood dishes, pan-seared octopus, grilled fish, delicate risottos, and roasted white meats.
