CATARRATTO

“Telling the peasant history of a past-time Sicily…”

A white wine made of catarratto grapes macerated with their skins for a long time, that brings back the memory of the peasants of Marsala, in the Sicily of our grandparents. The extended skin contact allows the extraction of tannins from the berries, thus lending its character to the wine.

“Macerato Catarratto” is very low in sulphites (13mg/l), all of which naturally occur during fermentation. It’s a wine that brings back memories, but also a wine we actually remember, an evolution of the kind of wine the local peasants once produced in the Marsala countryside.Tradition and innovation come together in a glass of wine that tells the ancient story of the intense relationship between the winemaker and his land. A glass of wine that observes the peasant history of a past-time Sicily through the eyes of the present.
