Details

Curatolo Zibibbo Seco, Moscato di Alessandria, aromatic, dry white wine. The grapes come from a single vineyard, located in Western Sicily, near Camporeale, just east of Marsala at about 350 metres above sea level. The resulting wine is elegant and exotic with citrus fruit zest and floral perfumes. Great with shellfish or even smoked fish!

Established in 1875 by Vito Curatolo Arini, the winery is now run by the fifth generation of Curatolos, making it the oldest family-owned Marsala producing business. The Marsala, still made in the traditional way, are the real deal. The base wine for the 12% in alcohol and has a minimum residual sugar level of 20 grams per litre. Alcohol in the form of mistella (fresh grape must with added alcohol) and mosto cotto (concentrated fresh grape must which is traditionally 'cooked' until it reduces to a third of its initial volume) are then added to the base wine, giving it a final alcohol content of 17%, the desired sugar level and the traditional flavour. The wine is then aged for over five years (minimum two years by law),and 10 years for the Riserva, in 150 hectolitre Slovenian oak casks. Pretty serious and costly wine making for this price point.
