Catarratto

Catarratto – ancient grape varietal traditionally planted in Sicily and used in the production of Marsala and other fine wines.

Note:

Catarratto Bianco Comune – white grape of Sicily, oftentimes referred to as simply Catarratto.

Catarratto Bianco Lucido – white grape cultivated in Sicily, sometimes simply called Catarratto. DNA suggests that these grapes are both simply clones of the same variety. Grillo is likely the offspring of Catarratto and Muscat of Alexandria. Garganega of the Veneto has a parent-offspring relationship with Catarratto. Offers bright aromas of citrus and herbs with a minerally aftertaste.
