Due Terre Cataratto 2019 (Case of 6)

£95.54

Cataratto is one of the most important indigenous grapes from the island of Sicily and the most widely planted. It is used in nearly every white blend on the island and produces a consistent, drinkable wine. This example is an incredibly versatile wine that can be enjoyed with a number of dishes; classic notes of tropical fruit and green almonds lend well to difficult to pair foods such as artichokes and asparagus.

The winery was founded by Vito Lauria who revitalised his family’s old operation upon returning to Sicily from his studies and work experiences in Northern Italy. Due Terre is based on important, historic relationships that Vito has with small, family growers working organically around Mt. Bonifato. These are growers that have usually been practising organics for many, many years and who have genuine engagement with the vines and love for their land. Wines are all fermented on native yeast and guided in to the bottle with the aim of letting the quality of the fruit speak without the need for manipulation or heavy sulphite doses.
