Feudo Maccari Grillo 2014

Alberello trained (bush trained) vines are an average 20 years old, and have been planted with a southern exposure at 250 feet elevation, situated about one mile from the sea. To encourage aromatic depth and flavor complexity, grape yields are low: 3.75 tons/acre. In the spring, the vines are pruned to one bud per plant, and in June/July, a green harvest is performed to eliminate lesser grapes. Twenty days prior to harvest, the vines go through an additional cluster thinning, or a selection of the best grapes in the bunch. [+]
