Straight Grillo Grapes from calcareous soils. A beautiful bright and shining light yellow. The bouquet is lucious with pleasant aromas of spring flowers and white-fleshed fruit on a mineral background. Fresh and savory mouthfeel, with a good and pleasant length.

For centuries the manor has towered above the “Pianogrillo” hill. It is a true manor house amid cypresses and olive groves, overlooking a green plain known as “Piana dell’Acate”, within the ancient county of Modica and Chiaramonte (nowadays Province of Ragusa). Originally, during the Middle Ages, the building on the hill was a watchtower to lookout for and defend against the Saracens.

Pianogrillo Estate has belonged to my family, the Piccione di Pianogrillo barons, for centuries. Here at Pianogrillo, we produce High-quality extra virgin olive oils and, in recent years, wine, utilizing organic farming methods. The Vines and olive trees grow over a mix of sand, limestone and white marlstones at an elevation of 480 metres above sea level. There are rather dramatic differences in temperature between day and night, a real boon in this typically Mediterranean climate. We cultivate four indigenous grape varieties: Grillo, Grecanico, Nero d’ Avola and Frappato.
