Another consistent offering from the MGM Mondo del Vino people: this Grillo from Sicily.
Grillo is normally a blending grape for Marsala but on its own is a refreshing drop, especially on a warm evening.
On offer from O’Briens, another good party wine.
We weren’t impressed with the 2012 but this 2013 makes up for it and we served it to the family at Ian’s fifth decade birthday bash.
Slightly oakey with nice blackcurrants, decent party wine to cater for all tastes. From the Belice Valley in Sicily near Selinunte.
€10.99 reduced to €8.99 in O’Briens.
Grapes from Sicily but bottled in Piedmont.
Akin to eating an Irish Cheese which is ‘made’ and packed in England by Tesco from Irish Dairy produce. Perhaps.
The O’Briens guff stated this was like a Shiraz but I’m afraid I wasn’t hugely impressed – a rather poor single sided version of a Nero D’Avola.
Perhaps I didn’t chambre it properly or maybe it needed decanting into a Carafe.
