Estate Regaleali

Buonsenso | Catarratto

Vintage 2020

In Regaleali, cultivated up to 900 metres above sea level, it brings the harvest season to a close, as it is the variety that ripens latest, even later than the reds. The result is a wine of sublime quality, stripped of the coarse qualities the variety usually has in coastal areas. Elegant, fine, with a perfumed bouquet of pink grapefruit, yellow peach and green tea, in the mouth supported by a fresh acidity that makes it long-lived and tasty on the palate, long and persistent. In short, if you have an ounce of Common Sense, in our territory Catarratto is the variety to cultivate. Hence the name Buonsenso, also because it tastes good and pleases the senses.
