Da Vero Biologico Catarratto, IGT Terre Siciliane [Organic] 2021

 

Sicily’s warm, dry climate is ideal for organic cultivation, so is a great source of good, affordable organic wines. The Da Vero wines ('davvero' meaning ‘really’ or ‘naturally’ in Italian) are the result of our long relationship (over 10 years) with a cooperative in Sicily, who we have been working with since our Sicilan project began.

 

Production

The Catarratto grapes are sourced from the north-west corner of Sicily, at Calatafimi, between Marsala and Palermo. These Guyot-trained vines grow in high altitude vineyards (around 500m) with chalky soils. The vineyards were converted to organic viticulture in 2005. The grapes are gently pressed and the must vinified at 16ºC. Maturation in stainless steel.

 

Tasting notes

Bright, appealing aromas of citrus and fennel with delicate floral notes. The palate is fresh and incisive with grapefruit and preserved lemon characters, good concentration, and mid-palate weight leading to a tangy finish with crisp acidity.

 

Food match

Pair with starters, seafood and risotto
