Tasting Notes: A delicious and characterful dry white, from a very under-rated grape variety. A ripe, versatile and approachable dry white from western Sicily. Attractive aromatics of floral peach, tropical fruit and a hint of fennel. The rounded and gently honeyed flavours on the palate are balanced by lemony acidity.

Producer Details: Set up in 2003, Adria Vini is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Vini Piemontesi, the leading co-operative in Piemonte. All areas of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica's Claudio Manera and Lella Burdese. Working closely with growers and cooperatives, their aim is to produce a range of authentic, well-priced wines from local grape varieties. The mainstay of white wine production is Pinot Grigio, sourced from the Pavia region south of Milan, Friuli and the Veneto, with the addition of Prosecco, and Grillo and Catarratto wines from Sicily.
The reds come from mature, low yielding vineyards in Sicily, Puglia and Abruzzo, the source of some of Europe's most undervalued and characterful wines. Their most recent project has brought Cannonau and Vermentino from Sardinia to the portfolio.

In The Vineyard: Catarratto is the most planted white grape in western Sicily, producing both Marsala and dry white wines. This wine is a blend of two components, one from near the town of Marsala, the other, from the Catarratto ‘Lucido’ clone, from hillside vineyards at 600m altitude near Alcamo.

In The Winery: Gentle pressing, cool, slow fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks using selected yeasts. The wine was bottled young after a short period of ageing on fine lees in stainless steel.
