The 2020 Grillio comes from the Borgo Guarini Estate where the hillside terroir beautifully captures the uniqueness of the region. Grillo is typically grown by the coast, however Firriato has chosen the hillside of the Borgo Guarini Estate where the flow of the wind allows them to obtain more aromatics and freshness. This is evident in the class as fresh, inviting aromas of lemon, melon, tangerine, blossoms and almond nuances all emerge beautifully. On the palate this is just as fresh with a gorgeous texture and wonderful balance through the finish where it shows a nice mineral edge. This is drinking beautifully now and would be best if approached in its youth while it retains its incredible freshness.
