Canicatti – Fileno, Grillo 2018 – Terre Siciliane IGP

The nose is fruity and offers tension. It reveals notes of kumquat, juicy/fresh mirabelle and small notes of juicy citrus associated with small touches of leather as well as a very discreet hint of sweat and orange flowers. The palate is fruity, well-balanced and offers a juicy frame, fat, suavity, a juicy/finely acidulous frame, minerality as well as tension. On the palate this wine expresses notes of kumquat, crunchy green apple and small notes of crunchy brugnon associated with fine touches of juicy mandarine as well as very fine hints of flowers/honeysuckle, lemon flowers as well as an imperceptible hint of honey (in the background) and fresh almond. A discreet hint of lemon seed/fresh almond on the persistence.
