Catarratto Orange

WINERY Cantine Europa 'John Dapetrosino'
REGION Sicilia

Our newest addition to the popular John Dapetrosino line is this stunning orange wine from the native Sicilian grape Catarratto. Certified organic and fermented in amphora, it is a stellar introduction to orange wine for those unfamiliar, and a great rendition for existing fans. A gorgeous golden orange in color, this wine offers fruity notes of apricot, dried fruit, and aromatic herbs. On the palate, it is fresh with a pleasant return to the aromatic notes.
