Ciello Bianco Catarratto 2017, Ciello, Sicily, Italy

hazy, almond, orange
The dynamic Vesco family took over the winery 10 years ago and have since revolutionised the viticultural practices. The vineyards, located high up in the hills above Alcamo, are all certified organic and the grapes tend to be picked earlier in the year than many of their neighbours which produces their customary bright, fresh style of wine. The local grape Cataratto here is fragrant and crips with a pleasant trace of pink grapefruit and apple skin with soft almond on the finish.
