Catarratto extra lucido – classic method brut nature
Catarratto extra lucido / IGP Terre Siciliane / organic agriculture / CSQA certification
At the foot of Bonifato mountain, with a north/north west exposure, we have a small vineyard of extra shiny catarratto. Its position is privileged because it comes out of an extensive travertine bank of extraordinary importance for the geological reconstruction of this part of Sicily. It guards, in fact, thousands years of history, witnessed by very important fossil finds.
A soil so rich that brings back to the grape a mineral aspect quite complex that we found it particularly ideal for a sparkling base.
Area of origin
Sicilia, Alcamo (Tp)
Included wine varieties
Catarratto extra lucido, cru
Guyot vine training system
Yield (in quintali of grapes per Ha)
The grapes are picked in cases and pressed entirely once in the winery. Winemaking in white and taken in sparkling according to the classic method. Wine aging for a minimum of thirty months, and so the pouring is done with the same wine, without sugar added.
30 months on the yeast
Colour: straw yellow. Smell: notes of almond and bread crust. Taste: a very mineral and savory initial entry that opens up to a more complex acidity. Yet critical notes remind you of lemon and other citrus that work out in an ending that confirms the typical notes of the vine.
