Garganega / Grecanico

A grape grown in the rich volcanic soils of Sicily, it is relatively unknown by its Sicilian name, Grecanico. It is far more widely known by its Northern Italian name: Garganega. In the Veneto region, this grape is responsible for the beautifully crisp and mineral-driven wines from Soave.

In Sicily, Grecanico is usually left to ripen on the vine a little later than its Northern counterpart, producing wines that are a little richer and more aromatic. The wines are often described as showing ripe tropical fruits with a tangy acidity and subtle minerality.
