100% Catarratto

The Praruar, meaning golden in the once-locally-spoken Greek and Albanian, presents aromas and flavors of the local volcanic subsoil, nuts, fennel, and iron. Rich and deep, yet still elegant, this balanced expression of one of Sicily's most exciting white varieties combines acid, extract, tannin into an intriguing, delicious, gustatory experience.

Produced exclusively from grapes grown on the Il Censo estate outside of Palazzo Adriano; vineyards are farmed organically and grapes are harvested manually, with harvest occurring usually in October. The grapes maintain contact with the skins for two to three weeks, the length of the maceration depending on the vintage; only indigenous yeasts are used during fermentation and no temperature controls are utilized; the wines is bottled with being fined or filtered.
