Feudo Arancio Grillo 2005 wine review by (PB)
This Sicilian white is pale yellow with slight hint of green.
The bouquet is sweet and powdery; quite fragrant with fruity, citrus notes.
It is off dry on the palate with simple flavors that accompany appetizers well and would make a nice chilled, summer wine. I didn't even know this grape existed but (NW) and I found it on our most recent Boston bargain hunting excursion. It was $8 and was worth that just for the experience of a new varietal. It's not a block buster but is pleasant enough for sitting on a proch enjoying a warm summer eve. Chill it down fairly well and enjoy! Raise a glass to warm summer nights--we just came out of sub-zero temps where I am from... brrrrrrrrrrrrrr.
