Borgo Selene Catarratto-Inzolia 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The Curatolo family has been producing excellent Marsala and creditable wine for over a century. Since the 1999 vintage Alberto Antonini has acted as a consultant to the Curatolos and brought with him the modern winemaking skills that allow the varieties to express their maximum potential. The Borgo Selene wines (‘Selene’ is derived from the word for ‘moon’ in Greek, an illustration of the influence of the Greeks who also brought the vine to Sicily, have had on the Mediterranean’s largest island) are made and blended by Alberto Antonini. Produced from selected grapes grown in the hilly areas in the province of Trapani in Western Sicily. The Curatolos currently have more than 100 hectares under vine. This lovely white blend is a bright straw coloured wine with a fruity bouquet of green apples and pears. Crisp and clean on the palate, it is fresh and medium bodied with a lovely balancing acidity.
