I discover it so thrilling to share wine varietals that I’ve simply found myself with others. The varietal catarratto, which I used to be launched to this summer season, isn’t any exception. Catarratto is a white wine grape from Sicily. It is among the oldest, and main, grape varieties within the space. It is usually most likely the simplest consuming wine I’ve ever skilled. However don’t be fooled by this wine’s simple consuming nature, it’s nonetheless a good 13% alcohol and fairly dry. For those who’re a pinot grigio fan, undoubtedly give catarratto a attempt for one thing a bit totally different and extra flavorful, however which is each bit each bit pretty much as good with a number of meals pairings. For those who like sauvignon blanc however are prepared for a wine that’s little softer, this wine is an ideal possibility.
This particular catarratto, from Alessandro di Camporeale Benede, is so splendidly drinkable. It has just a little frizzante, most likely unintended however not unwelcome. It has notes of lime and excellent minerality, and it’s extremely clear, with low acidity. As I mentioned earlier than, it’s scrumptious with virtually any meals. No must restrict it to the white wine checklist of seafood, salads, and aperitifs, although it goes properly with these meals too. You understand what else it goes nice with? A finances. At solely $17 it’s a implausible purchase.
