Producer: Montalto is a family-run winery in the west of Sicily. The family coat of arms and the sun that appears on the bottle signify Sicilian warmth and
family pride.

Vineyard: Organically grown grapes were cultivated at 400 metres above sea level in the area of Salaparuta in the west of Sicily. The soil is a mixture of
clayey and richer soils and the climate is Mediterranean with little rain.

The vineyard is free from pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilizers.

Sicily is a strong and legendary land. Its climate, nature and winemaking experience make it unique for the viticulture. Indeed, it is the most important Italian wine producing region. The majority of the Montalto vineyards are located in Santa Ninfa, in the hearth of the Belice Valley. The others are in the province of Agrigento, in the Valle dei Templi and in Noto (south-east of the Island).

Winery: Grapes were destemmed and crushed and transferred to stainless steel tanks for a twelve-day fermentation. The juice remained on its lees for
eight weeks, with lees stirring twice a week throughout.

Taste: Fruity and dry with fresh citrus notes and a crisp, fruity palate. Aromas of apples and nuts with orange and orange peel notes on the palate.

100% Organic Catarratto IGT

Pairing: Fresh fish, vegetable, soft cheese, appetizer
