Description

Longarico Nostrale Terre Siciliane IGT 2020

Longarico Nostrale is a Sicilian white wine made with native Catarratto grapes. Deliciously fresh with a white flowers and stone fruit nose. Fresh and supple on the palate with good texture and a cleansing lemony and salty finish.

 100% Catarratto. The fruit for this wine comes from Longarico's few hectares of organically farmed vines located in Sicily. The vineyard has an altitude of 350 metres and calcareous-clay soils. 

Hand harvesting, destemming and soft pressing of the grapes into stainless steel tanks where they ferment with indigenous yeasts. The wine goes through malolactic fermentation and ages on the lees in tank for about 7 months. Bottling without fining or filtering, then goes through a further 3 months of ageing in bottle.
