What they say
Pale lemon in colour, this Catarratto is crisp and characterful. It has delicious citrus notes and vibrant acidity making it a great, easy drinking Sicilian white.

About the producer Alpha Zeta
These wines are made by Alana McGettigan and Matt Thomson at a private winery in the hills outside of Trapani. Alana and Matt manage to fit this into their other commitments, Alpha Zeta, Ponte del Diavolo and Il Faggio, since the harvest for Catarratto and Syrah takes place in the first half of September. Alana selects the fruit from the estate’s vineyards and vinifies it in their modern winery, which is well equipped with a must chiller and temperature controlled stainless-steel tanks.
