Ciello Bianco Catarratto Stelvin

Ciello Bianco Catarratto Stelvin

The Vesco family are the driving force behind Ciello, they are a dynamic bunch keen to spearhead the direction that Sicilian wines are going in the 21st century. Their belief in low-intervention and natural viticulture is bringing the grapes of Sicily to a global and increasingly savvy wine drinking audience. On top of this, their fresh, bright flavours, and open-minded use of a blend of traditional and modern methods have captured the imagination of a whole army of new fans. The sun-soaked island of Sicily is a wine lover’s paradise: the ancient vineyards which cover the rocky soils have been producing high-quality wines since time immemorial, and wine runs through the veins of the Islanders instead of blood. It is here we find the winery of Ciello, one of the few organic organisations in Sicily, but one which is quickly and confidently converting the population to the concept of sustainable, zero-intervention viticulture.

Vineyards

The vineyards themselves are located in the sandy hills of Alcamo, nearly 300 metres above sea level. Fruit is picked early to retain acidity and freshness resulting in bright, crunchy and satisfying wines.

Vinification

Made from Catarratto, a local grape variety, and undergoes a short maceration on the skins, in the same way as you would make a red wine! This lends an extra element of grip to the wine, and also contributes to the faint amber hue in the colour of the wine.

Tasting Notes

This shows aromas of golden apple, quince, dandelion and salt, with plenty of refreshing acidity.  Notes of pink grapefruit and red apple, with hints of nutty almonds on the finish. A really exotic wine, with verve and intrigue, but without forsaking enjoyment and deliciousness.

The Ciello Bianco is not fined or filtered and can appear cloudy, please do not be alarmed, it’s still a stunner to enjoy!
