Italian orange wine made up of 100% Catarratto which spends a few weeks macerating with its skins to extract, colour, flavour and texture during wild yeast fermentation. The wine is bottled without fining or filtration and with low sulphur and they use Organic practices in the vineyards. The wine itself has a lovely pithy texture, full of ginger, sweet spices and savoury herbs.
Pair this with a cauliflower and apricot vegetable tagine.
"This has quickly become one of our bestselling orange wines. It is a great introduction to the style. It has the pithiness you expect, along with some bright apple and apricot fruit and a spicy finish. Enjoy this with friends over sharing platters of food."
The Vesco family took over the Ciello winery 10 years ago and have since revolutionised the vineyard practices and invested heavily in cutting edge technology for the winery and bottling line.
Their hundred hectares of organic vineyards are located high up in the hills above Alcamo. The wines are all certified organic and planted on south-east facing slopes on sandy soils 150 – 300m above sea level. The climate is well suited for producing the best quality grapes. Night harvesting and modern temperature controlled fermentations result in a bright, fresh wines. The wines are unfiltered and have a hazy appearance.
