"Valcanzjri" Terre Siciliane IGT 2020 - Gulfi

Valcanzjria is an excellent white wine from the Gulfi winery in Chiaromonte. We are in the province of Ragusa, at the southern tip of the island. Here Gulfi harvests the Chardonnay grapes, 60 per cent, and Carricante, the remainder, used for the production of this Terre Siciliane IGT. The grapes are harvested at different times. At the end of August the Chardonnay and in mid-September the Carricante. Fermentation in temperature-controlled steel tanks and refinement in the bottle for a few months. All very simple and linear. This reveals a beautiful wine characterised by a straw-yellow colour with green reflections. The nose is intense, rich, ample and fruity, with clear hints of apple and exotic fruit. In the mouth, however, it is dry and harmonious. Fairly acidic, with an unmistakable aftertaste of aniseed and almond. Aperitifs and fish dishes are its right match.

The area in which the Gulfi winery is located is one of the most fascinating in the region of Sicily. We are in the extreme south of Italy, at the eastern tip of the island. Here, Vito Catania's family calls itself simply the 'guardian of the terroir'. A mission that has led them, over time, to select the best plots, suitable for viticulture, in the most renowned districts of Chiaramonte Gulfi, in the province of Ragusa, Siracusa and Randazzo, on Mount Etna. To the tradition inherited from his ancestors, since 1996 Vito Catania has added innovation, starting a long work of mass selection and careful production of unique wines. The Catania family has always been sensitive to biodiversity. That is why they have not only selected and improved their great indigenous grape varieties over the years, but have also endeavoured to experiment with some allochthonous varieties, such as Carricante in the Monti Iblei, or even international ones, such as Pinot Noir, of distant French origin. The cultivation of vines according to organic farming principles is only a natural consequence of the winery's production philosophy.
