Sicily: magical land, crossroads of cultures where the greatness of nature, the warmth of the earth that here marries the Mediterranean Sea in a balance of grace, purity and harmonies, finds fulfillment in fine oenological expressions. Grillodoro by Gorghi Tondi is an image of the territory, not only a representation and complete sip of the Nature Reserve Lake Preola, but a rare and unique witness of a “Passito” with noble rot. In the countryside of Mazara del Vallo, south-western Sicily province of Trapani, in the village San Nicola, at an altitude of about 25 m / slm, the rows of Grillo receive those exceptional conditions that favor ,thanks to an alternation of humidity and sun, the growth of Botrytis Cinerea, a beneficial mold that modifies the characteristics of the grape, creating extraordinary taste-olfactory sensations. The amber, golden shades glass of wine is  a nectar that smells of dehydrated apricot and candied cedar, pine nuts, toasted hazelnuts, saffron, acacia honey. Memories of orange blossom invade the palate in a fresh and iodized sip, never excessively round, always happily stretched towards a length of the mouth supported by an endless acidity, and by savory and marine sensations. Grillodoro is the Italian "Cru" that in no way envies the great “sauternes” from Bordeaux, obtained from the skilful work of a winery that has been inspired by nature for four generations. Given its importance and structure, we pleasantly tasted it paired with a spicy gorgonzola.

 

Company Profile

Halfway between the sea and the Integral Nature Reserve, the winery is located inside a traditional baglio, in complete harmony with the vineyards and the surrounding natural context, a few steps from the hawks' nests, turtles, wild orchids and the colors of the Mediterranean scrub.
This is the world of Gorghi Tondi, an uncontaminated habitat where it is possible to admire an extreme, beautiful and evocative Sicily, without forgetting its fruits. Living the wine in the cellar therefore takes on a particular value; on the one hand, to discover the care and attention in the production of wines and, on the other, to let visitors experience a path that reveals the estate and its products, with tasting opportunities that are the hallmark of a passionate and attentive love , the same that the company dedicates to safeguarding the territory.
