I had this wine for the first time last night; it is the house pour at a very good Italian restaurant (L"Impero) here in NYC. I would love to learn more about it and the names of any good producers to look for....names of importers would be helpful as well. What kinds of foods (other than sushi) would this be a good match for?
Lots of Sicilian Grillos in the market (just google SICILY GRILLO), but only one listed by Parker, here's the quote:
Wine Advocate #165 (June 2006)
2005 Terre Grillo IGT
Rating: 87 points
Producer: Terre. Sicily, Italy.
The 2005 Grillo, made from an indigenous grape of the same name, displays crisp lemon/lime characteristics along with a hint of honeyed grapefruit, and green apples. Possessing fresh, lively acidity, medium body, and a crisp, zesty finish, it would be a lovely accompaniment to grilled seafood. Enjoy it over the next year.
