Tasting Notes

Pale lemon in colour, this Catarratto is crisp and characterful. It has delicious citrus notes and vibrant acidity making it a great, easy drinking Sicilian white.

Production Notes

The fruit was machine harvested and transported to the winery where it was crushed and destemmed and put into temperature controlled stainless steel fermenters. Fermentation took place at cool temperatures to preserve the aromatics and fruit characteristics of the grapes. The wine was shipped to Verona shortly after fermentation and stored in temperature controlled tanks until it bottling in April.

Press Quotes & Awards

Comes from vineyards on Sicily’s west coast it’s nose vibrant and the palate has the freshness one finds in a grove of citrus fruits. The lime and lemon mix is backed by richer flavours nectarine and apricot a balance that makes it an easy drinking glass on its own but a wine that has enough depth of flavour to go well with the fish and chicken on the menu, ideal with salads and toasted Mozzarella.
