The Full Review

This Grillo - an indigenous Sicilian white grape - is from a vineyard on the small island of Mozia. The island is located in the Stagnone Lagoon, between Trapani and Marsala, the westernmost point of Sicily. The color is pale yellow with a touch of green, and aromas include ripe white peaches, citrus, and almond blossoms. The texture is zesty and full, with flavors of tart honeydew, lemon, marzipan, and a hint of sea salt (which happens to be Mozia's other notable product). While a glass of this wine won't physically transport you to a Sicilian beach, it might be the next best thing. It's a natural, traditional pairing for seafood-driven couscous alla trapanese, or any other dish with a hint of saltiness.
