Grillo Mozia

A small island museum in the lagoon of Marsala (lo Stagnone), Mozia is a truly one-of-a kind production site. A marine ecosystem has always been associated with the vineyard, and the first plantation dates back to the early nineteenth century. The vineyard is organically cultivated as bushes in a non-irrigated regime. The grapes are harvested and collected in cases, transported to the mainland on flat-bottomed boats and transferred to the Regaleali estate in temperature-controlled trucks to preserve the aromatic integrity the grapes.

GRILLO

GRILLO

This grape has been the lead player in the production of Marsala for morethan two centuries. Vertical-trellised or traditionally bush-trained ('a alberello'), it's a vigorous, high-yielding plant. Leaves are large, dark and five-lobed. Clusters are large, elongated and often winged, with big, fairly round greenberries which take on a golden hue as they ripen, and present orangey markswhere exposed to the sun.
