Catarratto is a grape variety from the island of Sicily, off the southern coast of Italy, and is mostly used in the production of light, easy-drinking white wines. With spring here and summer on its way, I needed to find a new, no-brainer white to stock my fridge with. This salty, Mediterranean white fits the bill on all fronts.
Organic and biodynamic farming practices, native yeast fermentation, unfined & unfiltered, vegan-friendly, woman-winemaker!
This is an extremely elegant Rosato from the volcanic soils of Sicily. On the palate, it is energetic and precise with fine, salty minerality and a harmonious and long finish. Produced using organic farming practices, and native yeasts. Less than 500 cases made.
This wine is produced from 100% Nerello Mascalese, the “signature” grape variety of Etna.
‘A Rina’ is predominantly Nerello Mascalese-based wine from the contradas of San Lorenzo, Feudo, and Calderara Sottana. This volcanic wine shows impressive delicacy and great structure. Made under certified organic farming practices, fermented naturally with indigenous yeasts, and only 2,500 cases produced annually.
For Pinot Noir and Nebbiolo lovers, Nerello Mascalese is an exciting find!
