Il Grillo di Santa Tresa. Vittoria, Sicily, Italy.
Demand for prosecco continues to grow unabated. But here at BinTwo we like to introduce you to something different. Over the winter we found this stunning sparkling wine from Sicily made with 100% grillo grapes. On a dreary February morning this bright, clean fresh little fizz opened a brief window to sunnier places. Some wines we debate endlessly before deciding to order it. With this one Kate, Harriet and I exchanged nods of approval and uttered two words… “oh, yes”.
Don’t just consider this a prosecco alternative; it’s so much better than that. Pale straw coloured with hints of gold, this wine has fine, gentle bubbles and a fresh fruity nose with hints of citrus and floral notes. Dry and fresh with really well balanced acidity, this fizz will slip down easily on it’s own but would also go nicely with shellfish.
We’ve never offered a prosecco by the glass here at BinTwo. But we think this fizz might just have earned a place on the terrace menu this summer. That’s how much we love it and we reckon you will too. It’s even organic and vegan friendly too – you can feel positively virtuous about drinking it!
Already great value at just £16.00 or a steal at £14.40 to wine club members!
