Organic, oily, fleshy.
Da Vero is an organic wine made by Araldica, a third-generation, family-operated co-operative based in Piedmont, Italy. Araldica has expanded their winemaking projects, working with local farmers and growers throughout Italy to produce well-priced still and sparkling wines from local grape varietals in regions such as Veneto, Lombardy, Abruzzo and Sicily.
The Catarratto grapes are sourced from the north-west corner of Sicily, at Calatafimi, between Marsala and Palermo. The vines grow in high altitude vineyards (around 500m) with chalky soils. The vineyards were converted to organic viticulture in 2005, the wine was mature only in stainless steel.
Oyster shell, honey, green almonds and crunchy tree fruit aromas are underscored by a good dollop of pine resin. It's a fleshy wine with an oily texture and flavours of wild honey and citrus pith. A straightforward weekday dinner white.
