Cataratto

Description

The Bianco Maggiore Grillo is made by Cantine Rallo at their winery a stones throw from the beach in Marsala, Sicily. Vineyards are certified organic and are nestled in the hills south of Alcamo which takes advantage of the slightly cooler temperatures and greater diurnal differences.

This is an orange wine made from 100% Cataratto, the wine ferments in 50 hl acacia barrels with 24 hr maceration of the grapes, followed by a second soft pressing. This is naturally fermented, unfined, unfiltered, no SO2 added ‘orange’ wine. The nose is all citrus, apple, pear, lychee and elderberry. On the palate these fruity notes are enriched by an elegant tannin due to the skin contact, and this finishes fresh, fragrant and dry.

Serve lightly chilled with Sicilian pasta, or chickpea fritters.
