Creamy, fresh, value.
Araldica is a third-generation, family-operated co-operative based in Piedmont. They work with over 230 Piedmont grower members and produce the high quality Piedmont wines from the most prestigious winegrowing regions but they also make wines in a number of other Italian regions, such as this one from Sicily.
Made entirely from Catarratto sourced from the Marsala area on the west coast of Sicily, and from hillside vineyards near Alcamo, this wine was bottled fresh, after a short period of aging on the fine lees in stainless steel tanks.
Wild flowers, beeswax, lemon peel and pineapple aromas roll onto a palate with creamy yellow fruits and lemongrass flavours. It has an oily texture and nice concentration, dry and lively it a slam dunk in the good bang-for-your-buck category.
