The Caterratto wines vines for Resilience Caterratto wine grow in the calcareous vineyards of the Colomba Bianca cooperative in Western Sicily at altitudes from 400 to 600 m.
The grapes were hand-picked and carefully sorted. The grapes were vinified at the cooperative’s Vita winery outside Trapani, where they were processed quickly to maintain the unique characteristics of these grapes, respecting their territorial origin. The grapes were pressed softly to maximize the scents and natural acidity of the must. Following the static separation of the skins the must was cooled to 12°C for 24 hours in order to clarity the must before the fermentation, which took place in stainless steel tanks. Refinement of the wine took place in the tanks for 5 months with frequent batonnage to maintain the noble lees in suspension and limit the use of sulphites.
