THE GRAPE AND THE LAND
Alcamo | Sicily | Italy
Catarratto is one of the most important indigenous grapes from the island of Sicily and the most widely planted. It is used in nearly every white blend on the island and produces a consistent, drinkable wine. We use the less common biotype called Catarratto Bianco Lucido which is known for making higher quality, elegant wines that are more complex, full of juicy acidity and pleasant minerality. Our north and east facing vineyards on Monte Bonifato is over 650m above sea level on pure calcareous rock with a very thin, poor topsoil.
