Juculano Catarratto

Frizzante IGT Terre Siciliane

Playful, exuberant, and lively all in one word: Juculano. A very versatile lightly sparkling wine produced with Catarratto grapes, the most common white grape variety in Sicily. Ideal as an aperitif, but it is also a good partner for seafood dishes.

Grape varieties: Catarratto

Vineyards: medium-textured soil tends mainly to clay; training system: guyot

Raccolta: by hand into crates, in September

Maceration: the carefully selected grapes are cold macerated for 24 hours, followed by soft pressing and settling. The resulting juice is left to partially ferment at a controlled temperature and subsequently decanted into air-tight tanks; here, the spontaneous process by which sugar is turned into carbon dioxide gives the wine its delicate perlage
