Terebinto Grillo Sicilia DOC
"Terebinto" is a shrub with bright fronds, linked to Sicily and the Mediterranean landscape and it has inspired Planeta winery for the name of its Grillo Sicilia DOC. Terebinto Planeta is, in fact, a white wine obtained from 100% Grillo grapes, a native Sicilian variety grown in the Ulmo estate, located in Sambuca di Licata (Agrigento). After destemming, crushing and soft pressing, must decants at low temperature and ferments at 15 °C; at the end of fermentation, the wine refines on fine lees for 6 months in steel, where a bâtonneur keeps the lees in suspension.
Planeta's Grillo Terebinto is an aromatic wine, characterized by intense aromas of apricot, litchies and tropical fruit. Light yellow colour with greenish hues. In the mouth it is fresh and vibrant, despite a good alcohol volume. We suggest serving it at a temperature of 10-12 °C.
