2018 Che Fico Sparkling White Wine
Sicily, ItalyNot available in the state you are shipping to.
Lively and bright with notes of lemon curd, pineapple and ripened peach balanced by a touch of honey on a light-bodied frame with finely textured bubbles and a refreshing finish.
Italian, of course! This sparkling wine pairs well with classic seafood antipasti – think crab toast with lemon aioli and squid fritto misto with green onions and squash.
Residual Sugar: 4.9 g/L
Che Fico. You say it “Kay-Fee-Koh,” and it’s Italian for “How Cool!” As in, “this wine comes a 25,000-acre organic coop on the island of Sicily? Che Fico!”
For this sparkling wine, grapes were hand-picked from 20-year-old vines planted in red clay soil reflective of the region’s terroir. Grapes were de-stemmed, sorted and fermented in refrigerated stainless steel vessels. The wine then aged in stainless steel before bottling, unfined and lightly filtered.
Did You Know? Catarratto is a native varietal that is still almost exclusive to Sicily, a Mediterranean island off the coast of Italy. The varietal makes up more than half the island’s total viticulture.
