Catarratto Terre Siciliane IGT BIO
Area of origin
Valle del Belice. Relatively deep alluvial based soils of medium texture with a mix of limestone and sand. Dark soils with a good content of organic matter.
Barone Montalto gives special attention to the environment both in production and in the materials used. Our goal is that this effort is reflected in the quality of our wines. Catarratto 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.
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.
Fish starters, grilled vegetables, marinated anchovies . Serve at 8-10°C.
