Cataldo

Sicily is Italy’s southernmost region, for more than 2500 years the area has been a significant center of Mediterranean viniculture, although the reputation and style of its wines has changed significantly over that time. Although once famous for sweet Muscats and later fortified Marsala the island’s best known wines are now its dry table wines produced under the regional IGT title, Terre Siciliane.

Produced from 60% of Grillo and 40% of Inzolia grapes, this wine is a pale gold in colour, almost akin to straw. this is a beautiful and delicate wine. The nose is distinct of white blossom, with hints of almonds and fragrant herbs that carry through to the taste. 75cl // 12.5% ABV // £8.49
