Made from the Grillo grape (fast becoming one of my favorite white grapes) in Sicily.  Silvery with slight golden hues, clear and bright.  On opening there was a bit of a chemical note, but that blew off in 15 minutes and it was clean after that.  Tropical fruits (guava?) with vanilla and very slight smoke.  Light to medium bodied.  On the palate, this has tart acidity.  13% abv.  A very nice juicy texture.  On the palate, flavors of blood oranges with some vanilla.  Guava notes come out on the finish.  This is delicious on its own and will work well with sea food or vegetarian dishes.  Drink over the next three to six years.  A very nice value as well.
