Reviews of purchase Ottoventi, Grillo, Sicilia IGT, 2010
Wine clean straw-yellow color.
Wine attracts fresh, rounded, slightly buttery taste of medium intensity. The dominant colors of ripe yellow and white stone fruit adorn not sharp spicy tones and nuances of nuts.
Wine charms thin, very pleasant bouquet in which fruity aromas of pear, peach, grape and pineapple tones resonate with marzipan, dry grass and field notes of chalk.
Fine wine as an aperitif. It goes wonderfully with poultry, fish sauce, crustaceans, molluscs and cheeses. We offer to taste the wine with various seafood hors d'oeuvres (best fish), as well as with risotto or pasta with grilled fish and vegetables.
