Located on Sicily’s western-most coast near the town of Marsala, Caruso & Minini boasts a history that harks back to the late 1800’s when Antonio Caruso bought the company to grow grapes for the nearby Marsala factories. The company was passed through subsequent generations until Nino Caruso finally decided to begin making and bottling his own wine in the mid 1900’s. In 2004, Stefano Caruso joined forces with Mario Minini of Lombardy to launch the present-day winery, producing wines from indigenous Sicilian varietals such as Catarratto, Nero d’Avola, Frappato, Inzolia, and Nerello Mascalese. Today, Stefano’s daughter Giovanna works closely with her father to head up this historic winery.
Fresh and clean. Elegant and balanced fragrance that ends in a mineral and long finish. Pair with a simple lemon pasta, white meat or stand alone as an aperitif.
Bright straw yellow. Perfumed aromas of ripe tropical fruit, white flowers and lime. Bright and crisp but with a suavem rich mouthfeel that coats teh palate with previse Catarratto Lucido flavors of apricot, lime and herbs. Closes long dense and multilayered with a pungent floral quality. An absolutely knockout Catarratto, very likely the best I tried this year. Native yeasts and stainless steel only. Though the label doesn't state so, this is 100% Catarratto Lucido. 13% ABV
