Ciello Bianco Catarrato, organic, hazy, unfiltered, fruity. Just 3 out of 5 on the funky scale, this little natural white wine has bags of fresh tropical fruits, lemon pith and southern olive oil texture. There is grapefruit on the palate keeping it fresh but with 12.5% abv, there is plenty of body in the wine to stand up to a salad of Octopus.

The dynamic Vesco family took over the winery 10 years ago and have since revolutionised the viticultural practices and invested heavily in cutting edge technology for the winery and bottling line. Their hundred hectares of organic vineyards are located high up in the hills above Alcamo. The wines are all certified organic and planted on south-east facing slopes on sandy soils 150 – 300m above sea level. The climate is clearly suited for producing the best quality grapes. The results of their excellent work are evident in the fragrant crisp Catarratto that they produce at outstanding value. The wine is a million miles from the overripe styles made by many of their peers. Night harvesting and modern temperature controlled fermentations result in a bright, fresh Catarratto with a pleasant trace of pink grapefruit, apple-skin with soft almond on the finish. The wine is unfiltered and has an encouragingly hazy appearance, excellent natural wine at a great price.


4Reviews For Ciello Bianco Catarrato 2016

  1. How good is this wine?


    I don't know anything about wine, let alone organic wine, which people said wasn't everyone's cup of tea and was an acquired taste, but I thought it was yummy from the first drop! And, despite this being cheap as chips, it's my favourite so far. In fact, it's probably time for a small snifter . . .

  2. How good is this wine?


    fruity (stone fruits), fresh and floral. A nice summer wine!
