A local Sicilian wine: Grecanico

Grecanico is a local Sicilian white grape, supposed to be a wine of Greek derivation, imported in Sicily between the VII and the VI century b.C.

How to pair Grenico wine with food

It’s an excellent wine for shellfish and seafood. This wine can also be combined with pasta and Sicilian pachino tomatoes’ sauce. Last but not least, Grecanico wine is delicious with couscous, a typical sicilian dish, and vegetables. 

Serving temperature of Grenico wine

We tend to serve it fresh, around 12 or 13 C, in order to enhance the aromas and flavors without notching them by a temperature that does not benefit the wine, already endowed with an intrinsic crispness provided by its acidity.
