Catarratto is a white grape variety primarily cultivated in Sicily, Italy. It is one of the most widely planted grape varieties in the region. Catarratto wines typically exhibit a pale straw colour and showcase vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavours, including notes of lemon, green apple, and pear. They often have a refreshing acidity and a medium body, making them versatile for both sipping on their own or pairing with a variety of dishes, particularly seafood and light Mediterranean cuisine. Catarratto is valued for its ability to produce both still and sparkling wines with a delightful balance of fruitiness and freshness.
