IGP Terre Siciliane

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.
