Varietal Focus: Grillo

Grillo is a Sicilian white grape variety most famous for its role in the island's fortified Marsala wines. It is still widely planted on Sicily despite Marsala's fall from fashion, and is now used most commonly in a variety of still white wines, both varietal and blended. 

Tasting Notes: Fresh, lemon, quince, cashews, almond, subtle apple peel. Slightly glycerol with an exotic undertone. 

Pairings: Swordfish, trout, salmon, shellfish, poultry, pastas, and fresh root vegetables or fruits. We recommend:

Palazzo Malgara 2014 Grillo
Reg $13.99 | INSIDER $12.99 | Case $10.39

Domaine La Bessonne 2013 Rosé (Côteaux Varois en Provence, France) -- Reg $19.99 | INSIDER $16.99 | Mixed Case $13.59-- DELISH.  Delicate- lush- seductive fruits (lots of melon) with simple acidity & a spicy finish.  Sadly the exporter is no longer selling this wine, so when it's gone, it's gone. Don't miss it!

San Cassiano Corte Guala Classico (Valpolicella, Italy) -- Reg $18.99 | INSIDER $17.99 | Mixed Case $14.39 -- This blend is lighter and fresher than what you might expect ..and oh, what a nose! Notes of cherries, black pepper, tobacco, spices & subtle herbs. On the palate it's full of ripe cherries, juicy summer plums & vanilla. It has a lush body and supple tannins. Enjoy with roasted chicken, summer grilled meats and veggies, mature cheeses. Truly an outstanding wine!
