Barone Montalto

We are delighted to introduce you to the wines of Montalto, a family-run winery in Santa Ninfa, western Sicily.

The family presides over an areas of vines situated between 250-350 metres above sea level, ensuring they are able to produce wines displaying bright freshness despite the warm, dry Mediterranean climate.

All of their work is certified organic, their vineyard is free from pesticides, herbicides and chemical fertilisers and they conduct their harvesting by hand. They focus their efforts on the production of three monovarietal wines – namely Catarratto, Pinot Grigio and Nero d’Avola.

The result is a range of wines that are bursting with fruit and sunshine, yet underpinned by thirst-quenching acidity. All three of the wines also possess great texture, rendering them extremely flexible when it comes to food and wine pairing.

Catarratto 2019

Their Catarratto is fruity and harmonious, with hints of apples and nuts on the nose. It possesses a crisp yet rounded palate with notes of orange, citrus peel and herbs.

Another great AdV experience, another fabulous wine!

The thing that keeps me coming back to Art du Vin is the adventure of trying new wines, from areas I might normally overlook and grapes I haven't tried before. I also know that if they deem a wine worthy of inclusion on their list, I will definitely enjoy drinking it! This Sicilian Catarrato white is a perfect example of this. I'll be ordering more, because I know this is going to be my summertime go-to for a chilled white. It's light but complex - a grapefruity, citrusy mouthful and a distinct herbal kick at the finish.
