Production Area

Sicily Region - Valle del Belice

Soil

Winemaking

Cataratto sourced entirely from organically accredited vineyards. Part of the must is fermented in stainless steel tanks for 20 days at 12-14°C, the remainer is fermented on French Oak. Maturation in stainless steel with weekly bâtonnage for 3 months.

Tasting notes

The colour is a rich yellow straw. The nose shows a mix of Sicilian white and yellow melon with notes reminiscent of apple blossom. This is equally supported by a medium bodied profile of melon and white peach. A mineral-like acidity supports the vanillan French oak.

Pairing

Pair it with fish-based antipasti like swordfish rollups and soups, shellfish dishes and mature pecorino cheese. Serve between 10-12° C. / 50-54°F.
