A lovely, light-bodied, floral white wine from southern Italy's island of Sicily made from the Grillo grape. Perfect for seafood and shellfish.
Grillo food pairings: grilled sardines, fish tacos, calamari, salads topped with fresh steamed shrimp.

|Daniel O'Keefe rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:|
Tropical fruit aromas mix with melon, peach, and apple. Crisp acidity with a soft texture. Peach and floral through the finish with a mild herbal/spice hint. A very good and interesting white wine made organically from the Grillo grape. The perfect wine for Sicilian seafood or sipping on a Mediterranean beach.
|Jennifer Havers - WSET Level 3 rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Another great option for fresh seafood! Aromas of white peach, fresh floral blossoms, lime zest, and a bit of wet stone. Light in the palate with slight citrus notes and a stony minerality on the finish.
|Carolyn Hetke rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:|
Grillo is Sicily's primary indigenous white grape and a major component of Marsala. It has an interesting, aromatic, sweet nose with a hint of cloves- so aromatic it is reminiscent of vermouth. Clean, smooth and medium bodied with refreshing grapefruit on the palate. If you are looking for something different as a summer wine you have nothing to lose in trying this one at this price. Good value. Would pair well with seafood risotto or Fettuccine Alfredo. Tasted July 2019. www.thewineloverskitchen.com
|Rebecca Meir-Liebman - Sommelier rated this wine as 87/100 with the following review:|
Made from the Grillo grape variety that is indigenous to Sicily this wine boasts tropical notes of pineapple and papaya. The texture is round and provides a distinct melon mouth feel. Candy white peach on the nose; Fresh acidity and a slight olive pit bitterness at the end. Decent for the price.
|Produced by Colomba Bianca, this is a fresh and zesty summer sipping patio wine made from the Grillo wine grape from the Sicily wine region. Vitese 2017 is great value under $15, so fragrant with white floral aromas on the nose, dry and mouth-watering with grapefruit, dried herbs and honey stone fruit flavours on the palate. So refreshing. Chill and enjoy on its own or with grilled calamari. - Community Wine Reviews|
