Sicily At a Glance

Region Name Sicily

Sicily is Italy’s southernmost region and the largest island in the Mediterranean Sea. For more than 2500 years, Sicily (Sicilia in Italian) has been a significant center of Mediterranean viniculture, although the reputation and style of its wines have changed significantly over that time.

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2022 Vinous Media A sweet burst of confectionary spice and white smoke gives way to nectarine as the 2022 Grillo opens in the glass. This reverberates with mineral tension as crisp orchard fruits cascade beneath an air of tropical inner florals. Young mango and kiwi notes slowly taper off as the 2022 finishes fresh and with medium length. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2021 Wine Enthusiast Citrus blossoms and almond paste on the nose become the foundation for a palate that's sweet with marzipan and salty with gravel, crushed rock and almond skin, which lends a bitterness to the otherwise lush, round finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2021 Wine Advocate Here's a good value proposition with 15,000 bottles in production. The 2021 Sicilia Grillo reveals lots of citrus with preserved lemon, white peach and passion fruit. The wine is fragrant and almost sweet with exotic fruit flavors that add to its richness and medium density. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 87 Vintage 2021 Vinous Media A perfumed blend of candied ginger, mint leaf and kiwi introduces the 2021 Grillo. This is soft and round with hints of green melon and sweet inner herbal tones. It finishes a bit short yet crisp and refreshing. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 90 Vintage 2020 Wine Enthusiast Certified vegan, this bright, savory white offers aromas of lime, white spring flowers and Mediterranean herbs. On the refreshing, tangy palate, crisp acidity accompanies juicy pink grapefruit, orange zest and peach before a salty finish. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2019 Vinous Media The 2019 Grillo Sicilia holds your attention with a display of savory spice, sour melon, dusty yellow flowers and an enriching note of custard. It’s soft with almost oily textures, backed by juicy acids and ripe orchard fruits. Although a bit one-dimensional, it finishes wonderfully fresh and clean under an air of tropical florals. This spends four months refining in acacia barrels, followed by three months in stainless steel. Important to note is that Colosi has another Grillo Sicilia in their portfolio with a different label, bottled under screw cap and matured completely in stainless steel, yet without any difference in the name or DOC designation.

  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of jasmine, citrus and white stone fruit almost leap out of the glass. On the vibrant palate, crisp acidity accompanies Meyer lemon, yellow pear and a tangy hint of saline. KERIN O’KEEFE Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 88 Vintage 2018 Wine Advocate Previously an IGT Terre Siciliane wine, this white made with the Grillo grape is now part of the Sicilia DOC. The Cantine Colosi 2018 Sicilia Grillo has its own feisty character. It opens to a medium golden color and offers aromas of stone fruit, poached pear and baked apple. There are points of saffron and sweet baking spice as well. Aged in acacia tonneaux for a brief four months, this wine is designed to reveal a good amount of that elusive Grillo complexity. Examine those esoteric details alongside a simple pasta fagiolini. Some 14,000 bottles were made. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
