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.
