Catarratto Pinot Grigio Terre Siciliane IGP

The blending of these two grapes creates an enjoyable, everyday drinking wine that offers intense aromas of both citrus and tropical fruit flavours. Perfect with seafood or as an aperitif.

Grapes: 60% Catarratto and 40% Pinot Grigio.
Vineyard area: grapes are selected from the best vineyards in the Trapani area. This vineyard is one of the most characteristic and typical of this area, with a predominance of white grapes. Vine training is by traditional Spalliera system.

Harvest: Pinot Grigio is picked in the first part of August while Catarratto in the second part of September. Both are handpicked which allows us to select the grapes when at their optimum maturity while retaining the grapes acidity.

Vinification: after destemming, grapes are gently pressed. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures not exceeding 18°C for approximately 3 weeks. Malolactic fermentation does not take place. After the fermentation of Catarratto is finished, the two wines are blended and kept on fine lease until the end of December.
