Spontaneous fermentation with native yeast, unfined, minimal sulfites at bottling. The 2019 Turi Bianco Catarratto is a medium to light body white wine, golden yellow, with notes of white flowers, Mediterranean herbs, and bright acidity on the palate.
From the island of Sicily, comes this natural white wine from Agricola Salvatore Marino. Marino is one who believes great wine starts in the vineyard. The vines are planted in free standing bushes, and hand harvested with respect to the lunar calendar. According to Marino, "hoe and pruning shears are the tools I use most."
