Catarratto / IGP Terre Siciliane / organic agriculture / CSQA certification
Catarratto is our grape. For us it represents the vine of the oldest tradition. It has always been cultivated in our area, and in the past it was very rare to find it outside this area. Munir has a great responsibility to continue the tradition of our fathers. All our farmers cultivate it, precisely because of the deep bond that has been created over the years.

Very much enjoyed this one (with some bites and pizza). Full and aromatic, but nice and fresh at the same time. (Bought at Pieksman, Amsterdam.)
