SICILY

Sicily is the largest island in the Mediterranean and has a rich vinous history dating back over 2500 years. Its classic Mediterranean climate and soil has resulted in an area not only ideal for winemaking but also olives and citrus fruit which are key exports. Mount Etna dominates the landscape providing mineral-rich dark soil and vineyards are being planted higher up the slope. Historically more famous for the production of Marsala, serious transformation is taking place. Sicily is now becoming better known for top quality wines from a range of varietals including Grillo, Cataratto and Nero d’Avola alongside international varieties.

Image of wine Beleda Catarratto
BUY
TASTING NOTES

Catarratto is one of Sicily's indigenous varieties and one we almost never see on these shores. The brilliant Rallo is one producer championing this variety and really demonstrating what can be achieved when yields are restricted and it receives the attention it deserves. A wine with precise, linear acidity and a beautifully textured mouthfeel, this is all about fresh citrus...
