Grecanico Terre Siciliane IGP 2013
Like many other Sicilian whites, this wine has a wonderful lemony oiliness about it, with thick texture and a very decisive fruit quality. Grecanico is one of half a dozen southern Italian white wine grapes which reference their Greek origins, and all of which seem capable of making full-textured, clean wines, with hints of Sauvignon-blanc-like intensity, but a character all of their own. This opens with delicate aromas of yellow apple, stone fruit and lemon zest. The easy-drinking palate offers green apple and citrus alongside fresh acidity.
