An ancient grape variety, a cross between Moscato and Catarratto, results in a wine with a concentrated and complex aroma. It’s cultivated at Regaleali on the hills next to Case Vecchie. They produce it by blending grapes from different harvest times: the part from the early harvest, for freshness and hints of mineral; the part from the later harvest gives it structure. Just like in the fairy tales, the cricket “Grillo” was used by the fairies as a horse, hence “Cavallo delle Fate” (the fairies’ horse).

Pale straw yellow in color, Tasca d'Almerita Grillo offers a broad range of bright fruit aromas from crisp citrus to white peach, tangy apricots, and exotic tropical fruit like pineapple. An elegant backbone of minerality carries the wine across the palate and leads into a balanced finish.
