DENOMINATION: Sicilia Doc Grillo
PRODUCTION ZONE: south-west Sicily, Contessa Entellina estate and neighboring areas and in
the hilly hinterland between Marsala and Salemi ( Baiata, Alfaraggio, Pioppo district).
Grillo is an ancient autochthonous Sicilian grape variety, but it is also a cute little animal (the cricket)
that brings good luck. The name sur sur, that means cricket, comes from the classical Arabic language which was once also
spoken in Sicily. The voice of spring, with its scents and colors, is depicted on the label. It shows Gabriella (founder of
Donnafugata, with her husband Giacomo) as a girl in flight, running barefoot through the flowers and fresh grass, following
the singing of crickets that sounds sweet to her ears, like a thousand “SurSur… “.
TASTING NOTES : brilliant straw yellow, on the nose SurSur 2020 offers a fresh bouquet with notes of white
fleshed fruit (peach and cantaloupe melon) combined with scents of wildflowers and mint. The fruity notes resurface on
the palate with pleasant freshness and smoothness.
It matches perfectly with seafood appetizers, vegetarian first courses and roast fish. Try also with grilled
white meats and fresh goat cheese. Serve in tulip glasses of medium size and height, it can be uncorked at time of serving,
excellent at 9–11°C.
