Catarratto

Catarratto

D.O.C. Sicilia

Organic

From a young vineyard our Catarratto is born. An ancient native variety which stands out for its extraordinary freshness and flavor, and intense aroma and a marked acidity. The elegant notes of orange blossom and fresh white pulp fruit, combined with hints of aromatic herbs, make this white wine an excellent proposal to accompany fish dishes.
