I Templi Cataratto / Chardonnay 13% 2011

$32.00

This wine is the fusion between the wonderful climate of Sicily, the catarratto, the island’s great traditional grape variety and the chardonnay, prince of the international grape varieties, and the result of this union is truly delightful. An atypical, modern wine boasting fresh fruity flavours and elegant mouth feel with an attractive touch of acidity. It’s yellow colour with the golden tints is reminiscent of great Mediterranean wines. A full and fragrant structure combined with the warmth typical of Sicilian white wines. Selected parcels of vines cultivated at between 300 and 550 metres above sea level. Part of the chardonnay finishes the fermentation in barriques and the remaining part, together with the catarratto remains in steel tanks.  This results in great balance between fruit, acidity and integration of oak in the wine.
