100% Catarratto from Alcamo, Sicily, Italy. Practicing Organic, Indigenous Yeasts.
HISTORY: The Stabile Butera family have been vignerons for four generations. The family has always believed in a deep respect for the terroir and for indigenous grape varieties. In 2016 the decision was taken to produce a wine exclusively made with Catarratto from vineyards that stand at 500 meters above sea level on medium texture soils tending to calcareous. Catarratto is a grape variety that has been used in the recent past to produce blending wine. In the last years this grape was re-discovered, as it can express its full potential, obtaining wines with an excellent aroma and flavour, when grown in ideal conditions, such as found at Tenuta Le Terre Chiare. The aim of the estate, with full respect of the characteristics of the Catarratto grape, is to make a fresh and elegant wine supported by a good acidity, rich in floral and not quite ripe fruity notes, with a complex flavour where a mineral note stands out.
ABOUT: Vineyards were planted in 1999 at an elevation of 500 meters above sea level, in Medium texture tending to Calcareus soil, with Northwest exposure.
VINIFICATION: Hand harvested. Controlled fermentation with indigenous yeasts at 23-26 °C for 7 days, after which it was macerated on its skins for 12 days in Stainless Steel tanks. The wine was then aged in Stainless Steel tank and French Oak tonneaux for 8 months in both vessels, before being bottled.
TASTING NOTES: Light bodied White Wine. Pale Yellow with Greenish reflections. Thai basil, Star Fruit and floral bouquet. Long and crisp on the palate with plenty of Salty minerality, & Herbal and Citrus Peel notes on the long finish.
FOOD PAIRING: Legumes, Shellfish, Fish Courses, Seafood Pastas, Poultry and White Meat.
