"Pale straw color with a greenish glint; lovely fresh inviting aroma, citrus (mandarin orange), herbs, wet stones, very expressive; somewhat reminiscent of Fiano. Same on palate, excellent acidity, palate-staining concentration, excellent white wine but particularly striking for Sicily. Age a few bottles of this if you have the self-control, otherwise outstanding drinking now with seafood or roast chicken."
Vineyard and Winemaking Notes:
"The Giabbascio vineyard near San Giuseppe Jato is at 350m (1150 feet) above sea level and its Catarratto was planted in 1989. Soil is alkaline, clay with sand, rich in iron oxides (hence the ‘red earth’ of the name). Drains freely. Exact position: 37° 57' 15.66" N 13° 8' 41.42" E
Grapes are harvested in the second half of September, pressed immediately, fermented with selected neutral yeast and then aged for 9 months in 90% stainless steel, 10% stoneware ceramic (‘Clayver’) on the fine lees. Less than 1g/L residual sugar."
