Grillo is a white grape variety characteristic of the Marsala area. Vinified in purity, it gives wines of great organoleptic depth, savoury, fragrant and with a good potential for longevity. The colour of the Grillo is a greenish yellow, clear and bright that takes on reddish hues in the final phase of ripening. The wines obtained from Grillo have fruity and citrus aromas that integrate with the floral notes of wildflowers and orange blossom. On the palate the wine is fresh, well structured with a pleasant, slightly savoury and mineral finish.
These wines, with their lively freshness, are born from the historic vineyards owned by the Rallo family since 1860. We are located between Contrada Birgi and Paolini, a stone's throw from the Stagnone Reserve and the historic Marsala Salt Pans. The presence of the sea contributes to the constitution of soils rich in minerals and with high sapidity, characteristics that give life to unique wines with Sicilian flavours and aromas.
The presence of the sea contributes to the constitution of soils rich in minerals that give life to unique wines with Sicilian flavours and aromas. They are sandy soils in which the important presence of limestone influences the organoleptic characteristics of the grapes. The typically warm, sunny and breezy climate is quite favourable for the cultivation of vines. The winter rains and the temperature variations of the summer nights allow the grapes to ripen optimally. These conditions prove to be decisive for defining the high sensory expression of production.
The Ribelli di Marsala wines are endowed with great pleasantness and drinkability, which are manifested through tickling freshness, a rainbow of floral aromas and the flavour that the sea breezes give to the grapes.
