2021 ORANGE - Catarratto IGP Terre Siciliane

Flavia Wines

Etna & Marsala, Sicily

With a bright orange colour, the nose opens with hints of ripe fruit, citrus peel, honey and aromatic herbs giving complexity. On the palate it is delicate and persistent, with a lively freshness and a Mediterranean flavour.
