Il Meridione Catarrato 2019

Sicily, ItalyNo big changes from Araldica’s third-generation, family-operated co-operative based in Piedmont. The cattaratto project sits outside the home region in Sicily. The grapes are grown organically in chalky soils at 500 metres above the sea in the northwest corner of the island, at Calatafimi. The fermentation and ageing are done in stainless steel to preserve the fruit. The nose is the southern Mediterranean with exotic notes of melon, mandarin orange, and Asian pear. The texture is smooth and broad with just enough acidity and a touch of bitter guava in the finish to make it fun to drink. Best with white meats, seafood dishes, and most vegetarian items.
