Baglio Antico Catarrato Ciello, Natural Wine, Orange Wine, 100% Cataratto, great value entry point for the Orange wine style.
If you are not familiar with orange wines, then this is a great place to start without breaking the budget. No, it doesn't have the finesse and style of a Radikon or Skerk but this little Sicilian wine offers all of the characteristics of natural, orange wine at a fraction of the price. Made by the excellent people at Ciello in Alcamo, Sicily, the Cataratto grapes spend a few weeks macerating with the skins during the wild yeast fermentation and the wine is bottled with low sulphur and no filtration. Rich, pithy fruit character, savoury herbs, ginger, spices and more abound. A great little glass of orange, ideal for curries and such like, great with a 'Pasta con le Sarde', the classic Sicilian peasant dish from the region.
