Ninfa Valdibella 2020
From Camporeale in Sicily, this orange wine is made from the rare variety Catarratto Extra Lucido, a mutation with soft skins and a more delicate profile than its relative Catarratto. Two weeks of skin contact, 6 months in steel tanks, and bottled with no additions. It's a proper orange wine with colour and structure, and an incredible aromatic profile of ginger and apricots. Saline, bold, and surprising. The grapes were destemmed and fermented on the skins for 10 days in steel tanks. After pressing the wine was returned to tank where it stayed on lees for 7 months prior to bottling. Unfined, unfiltered, and with no added sulphites.
