Sella & Mosca – Catore Alghero Torbato DOC

Sardegna / Sardinia


29 in stock

Catore is a selection of the Torbato variety, true expression of the terroir of the Alghero area, a great structured wine. The grapes come from a single vineyard with very calcareous soil and are harvested by hand when fully ripe in October. In the cellar the grapes are de-stemmed and crushed as one would do with a red, left to cold-macerate for 24 hours. After pressing the must undergoes alcoholic fermentation partly in steel vat and partly in barrique and a small part of the wine remains in contact with the skins for 100 days. Finally, the different batches of wine are blended and the wine ages for another year before being put on the market.

Color: deep straw yellow.
On the nose: orange blossom, chamomile, citrus fruit, pear, Mediterranean herbs, almond.
Taste: dry, full-bodied, round, savory with a refreshing finish.

Excellent white wine for food, to serve in large glass for structured wines.
Recommended with: meat tartare, hot spicy dishes, fish, white meats.
