General information

Catarratto is the most widespread variety in Sicily, traditionally cultivated with a wide arch, with the vines kept low and manual cultivation operations. The Catarratto grapes are harvested in crates and vinified to preserve all the peculiarities in the wine: the light straw yellow colour, the fruity and floral notes and the good structure.

Harvest period: first ten days of September.

Vinification system: cold maceration for 5 hours followed by soft pressing. Vinification and aging take place in stainless steel silos with inoculation of selected indigenous Sicilian yeasts at a controlled temperature for 4 months.

Tasting notes

Visual exam:
The wine is limpid, with a straw yellow color and with a good consistency in swirling.

Olfactory test:
The nose clearly perceives citrus notes and fresh white fruit such as peach and green pear. This is followed by smells of wild flowers and herbaceous hints.

Taste-olfactory examination:
The wine is dry, quite warm and quite soft accompanied by a present acidity and good sapidity; a mix that gives it excellent persistence.
