Abbazia San Giorgio

Lustro 2019


Unique skin contact Catarratto from vines trained in a unique traditional way-- vite ad alberello-- where the vines grow in independent bushes close to the soil making it possible for them to produce spectacular fruit even under the extreme conditions of the island, including heavy winds, scant rainfall, and harsh terrain. Beautiful notes of lemongrass, lime leaf, and green tea, with lots of structure and acidity. This skin contact stunner was made for pairing with Mediterranean or Italian dishes, like calamari, chicken Piccata, and other island inspired fare.

We love it with… 🍝🐙:capers:
