In a nutshell: An organic, slightly hazy, fresh and bright white from the western end of Sicily.
The lowdown: The vineyards this wine is grown in are in the sandy soils of Alcamo, west of Palermo, nearly 300m above sea level. It's made from the local variety Catarratto which, when ripe, is picked early in the day keep the acidity and freshness needed to make a bright and crunchy wine. It undergoes a short maceration on its skins which adds an extra depth of flavour and golden tinge to the colour. Clean and fresh and with a complexity and depth way beyond its price point it's full of ripe citrus and stone fruit, minerality, with notes of spice and herbs and a great balance.
Please note it's bottled unfiltered and can have a cloudy appearance.
When to drink: Flavourfilled everyday drinking, it's great with prosciutto, salami and all types of cured meats.

Their hundred hectares of organic vineyards are located high up in the hills above Alcamo and the wines are all certified organic and planted on south-east facing slopes on sandy soils 150 300m above sea level.
