Nassa Grillo

GRILLO
SICILIA
DOC

Nassa, a monovarietal white wine made with an autochthonous grape variety, takes its name from the tool of the same name used for traditional fishing and its imprint is shown on the label.

Our pure Grillo has a rich straw yellow colour, a complex floral and vegetable bouquet, and a uniform softness to the taste. It releases balanced notes of flavour and freshness to the palate, offering a tribute to the sea and the activities of the people who live in the enchanting seaside village of Marzamemi.
