Serranarrocco – Grillo, 2015

  • Basic info: Serranarrocco Grillo Terre Siciliane – Sicily, Italy, 2015
  • Type: White
  • Price estimate: $17 (weekly tasting)
  • Look: Medium yellow with some legs. Nice appearance in the glass.
  • Smell: apple and citrus
  • Taste: apple, stone fruit (like white peach and nectarine). Crisp, but not tart with a medium, round finish.
  • Conclusions: Pretty good. I liked this wine a lot, but it wasn’t super memorable a week or so later (when I got around to writing it up). It was very drinkable, and it kept well over the week that I had it.
  • Other notes: This was the wine I opened when Bob was away for business. I had a glass most nights when he was gone, usually while giving some attention to the furry creatures, new and old, after a long day at work. It was a great wine for just enjoying, and it didn’t require a lot of thought to enjoy it.
  • From the bottle: No bottle notes, but from Weekly Tasting, “This wine is medium-straw in color, with aromas and flavors of apricot, stone fruit, peach, grilled pineapple, and hazelnut, with a textured and decadent finish that you can describe as ‘custard’ or the feeling of creme brûlée.” 13% alcohol by volume.
