Intro to Carlotta Catarratto –
Carlotta Catarratto from Sicily is a ripe, versatile and approachable dry white wine from western Sicily. It has attractive aromas of floral peach, tropical fruit and a hint of fennel. The rounded and gently honeyed flavours on the palate are balanced by lemony acidity which help make this a fresh tasting wine.
Full tasting note and wine making –
Catarratto is the most planted white grape in western Sicily, producing both Marsala (sweet style) 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. After picking the grapes were gently pressed followed by a 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.
The Producer –
The Carlotta Catarratto from Sicily is made by Adria Vini which is a winemaking venture jointly owned by Boutinot and Araldica Castelvero that was established in 2003. It is the leading co-operative in the Monferrato hills of Piemonte, north western Italy and aims to produce authentic, well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varieties.
All aspects of production, from grape selection through to vinification, maturation, blending and bottling are meticulously overseen by Araldica’s winemaking team of Claudio Manera, Lella Burdese and Carlo Manera. Production is twelve million bottles annually and the wines are exported to more than twenty countries worldwide. The co-operative sources grapes from a range of private growers and other cooperatives, with whom they built up have long term relationships, principally in Veneto, Friuli, Lombardy, Sicily, Puglia, Abruzzo and Sardinia.
