Aldo Viola "Egesta" Grillo 2018

Unit price per
"Egesta” is the old Hellenic name for an area of western Sicily close to Aldo’s vineyards, as well as the name of a local stream and its corresponding ancient water deity. Made from pure Grillo, this wine spends 8 months macerating on its skins in stainless steel without pressing and with occasional pump-overs, bottled straight from tank without any added sulfur. “Egesta”offers a panoramic nose of fresh almonds and subtle woodsy spice leading to a palate of remarkable balance, with subdued orchard fruits anchoring the slowly undulating waves of flavor. This wine offers stunning clarity and depth, particularly given the extreme length of its maceration, and it clings to the palate with both authority and gracefulness.
