Catarratto

IGP TERRE SICILIANE

The wine is brilliant and amber in colour and the maceration on the skins gives the wine an elegant aroma with scents that reflect the territory such as orange blossom. Yellow peach and trails of fine herbs leave room to mineral notes and hints of pumice stone. Citrus taste with an elegant tannin which accompanies every sip.
