Scio Bianco

Catarratto, Grecanico

Sicily

10.5 Alcohol

Introduction

Sicilian wines are finally getting the international recognition they deserve, and we couldn't be happier about it! The island off the toe of Italy, long considered to produce workmanlike but rarely exciting wines, is in the midst of a quality renaissance. Recognition of the island's unique volcanic soils, and the unmistakable character of the resulting wine, has sparked an explosion of investment and a renewed focus on quality. Scio Bianco comes from Cantina Europa, one of the island's most historic and important cooperatives. Member growers pool their harvests, and under the watchful eye of a dedicated team of winemakers, Grecanico and Catarratto are fermented separately in stainless steel tanks before being blended. The final wine is a celebration of two of Sicily's most important white grapes. It's refreshing and bright, a great alternative to Pinot Grigio. Enjoy over the next year at a well-chilled 6 C.


How it looks

How it smells

Aromatic and inviting, with aromas of lemon, yellow apple, and pear wafting from the glass. There's a hint of Sicily's signature minerality, with notes of wet stone and sea spray, along with a slight note of almond. Overall, it's fresh and bright, like springtime in a glass!

How it tastes

Light and energetic on the palate, with flavours that follow perfectly from the nose: meyer lemon, pear, and apple at the fore, with hints of peach and white flowers. The acidity is in perfect balance, providing plenty of lift and freshness to the tangy finish. This is a perfect aperitif white that will having you dreaming of warm summer nights.

Recommended food pairing

Scio Bianco's vibrant acidity would make it a match for pasta in a sun-dried tomato pesto, but it would also be lovely paired with fresh shellfish.
