Fabrizio Vella Bianco Organico 2021
This natural wine has a complex nose of citrus fruit, lemon zest and citrus blossoms along with hint of tropical fruits, herbs and sweet spices. Fresh, crisp and lovely minerality on the finish.
Fabrizio Vella Bianco Organico 2021 is from a line of natural wines produced by Cantine Rallo by Fabrizio Vella, a proud, local native to Sicily, in western Sicily and on the small island of Pantelleria. Cantina Rallo is one of the most progressive organic wine producers in southern Italy. All of their vineyards and farmland were certified organic by 2010, though many have been farmed organically for much longer. In addition to their organic vineyards there are pine forests, olive groves, wheat fields and blackberries all cultivated organically. The Fabrizio Vella wines come from vineyards that are farmed with biodynamic preparations.
Catarratto is a grape variety from the island of Sicily off the southern coast of Italy, and is mostly used in the production of light, easy-drinking white wines. Despite being grown almost exclusively in Sicily, it is one of Italy’s most commonly planted grape varieties, making up around 60 percent of the island’s total vineyard area.
