Ciello Bianco Catarratto 2017, Ciello, Sicily, Italy

hazy, almond, orange
The Vesco family are the driving force behind Ciello, and to a certain extent the direction of modern Sicilian wines in general. Their belief in low-intervention and natural viticulture, together with the bright, fresh flavours of their wines are bringing the grapes of Sicily to a global and increasingly savvy wine drinking audience. Made from Catarratto, this bianco undergoes a short maceration on the skins, giving some grip and colour to the wine. Showing flavours of golden apple, quince, dandelion and salt, with plenty of refreshing acidity. A really exotic wine, with verve and intrigue, but without forsaking enjoyment and deliciousness.
