The 2021 Grillo Zagra wafts up with a burst of crushed green apples, lime zests and minty herbs. This is soft and enveloping, with a sour citrus twang to balance and exotic inner florals that complete its tropical character. While only medium in length, the Zagra leaves the palate caked in salty mineral tones while tapering off wonderfully refreshing. - By Eric Guido on June 2022

The vineyards for Zagra are located along the coast, in the Contrada Biddine Soprana e Contrada Biddine Sottana , where the soil has a sandy-clay structure and characteristic yellow colour. The soil is relatively light, imbuing the wines with freshness and complex scents. Wine produced here includes Zagra, and is savoury and mineral, achieving the fullest possible expression of the three elements inherent to yellow soil, proximity to the sea and well-ventilated slopes. - Winery
