2013 Terre Siciliane White Blend

Sicily Italy


This Purato white blend is made with certified organic grapes; no artificial fertilizers or pesticides are used in the vineyard. A "sexual confusion" pheromone tactic and limited treatments of copper and sulfur prevent pest damage and, in order to preserve valuable water, under-soil irrigation is used to minimize evaporation. Purato's environmental commitment extends into the winery, where they use eco-friendly packaging made from recycled paper, pure vegetable ink on the labels and 85% recycled glass for the bottle.  This wine is a blend of Catarratto and Pinot Grigio grapes, fermented at a controlled temperature for three weeks with no malolactic fermentation.  After the Catarrato is fermented, the two wines are blended and kept on fine lees until the end of December.  The result is a well-balanced straw-colored wine that delivers aromas and flavors of citrus, tropical fruits and floral notes that make it a pleasant everyday wine that pairs especially well with seafood dishes and grilled fish.  12.5% ABV HWG
