Fabrizio Vella Bianco Organico 2021
IGP Sicily, Italy
Producer: Fabrizio Vella
Fabrizio Vella is a passionate winemaker living and working in Sicily.
Proud of the island that he calls home he wanted to create a wine range that was personal to him, that reflected where he was from. Working with our Masters of Wine and indigenous varieties of Cattaratto and Nero d’Avola he conjured four wines using an organic approach and careful winemaking to create wines that are fresh, exciting, moreish and true to their origin. A Sicilian wine through and through.
This natural wine has a complex nose of citrus fruit, lemon zest and citrus blossoms along with hint of tropical fruits, herbs and sweet spices. Fresh, crisp and lovely minerality on the finish.
90 points - Wine Pilot
'A good first step into the world of more natural wine made with organic grapes and minimal additions. It’s crafted from Cattaratto, a very widely grown indigenous grape variety, on the island of Sicily, which has historically been used for fortified Marsala. But now more and more locals are experimenting with making dry white wines. This example is pale golden in colour and has beautifully exotic aromas of blossom, cantelope, candied pears and nougat that showcase Sicily’s hot climate with a faintly earthy/smoky edge. It’s then quite subtle and reserved on the palate with earthy flavours coming into play in a full-bodied package with tangy, firm acidity. It’s definitely a wine best suited to casual drinking over the next 12 months.'
