Cataratto - Fabrizio Vella - Organic - Sicily - Italy
Fabrizio Vella is a passionate winemaker living and working in Sicily.
Proud of the island that he calls home he wanted to create a wine range that was personal to him, that reflected where he was from. Working with indigenous varieties of Cataratto and Nero d’Avola he conjured four wines using an organic approach and careful winemaking to create wines that are fresh, exciting, moreish and true to their origin. A Sicilian wine through and through.
This natural wine packs a punchy nose of crisp apple aromas. Crunchy green apple and a bit of lime lead on the palate which is rich in texture and a lemon drizzle cake finish.
Peter Richards MW of Decanter Magazine has this to say:
"This bold, complex and utterly engaging white was a real find in this tasting and went straight to the top of the shopping list. From its golden hue to the engaging aromas of glazed peach and tangy, dry, pithy palate profile, it's not for the faint hearted. There's a touch of gently oxidative marmalade and ginger too, but it's elegantly done. The finish is upbeat and food-friendly. Brings sunshine into any day – organic and great value too"
