A lovely fresh easy drinking organic Pinot Grigio suitable for Vegetarians and Vegans, made blending both the Catarratto and Pinot Grigio grapes from the Trapani area of Sicily.

Cantine Paolo Leo

Paolo Leo's Salice Salentino vineyard includes 4 hectares of interplanted Negroamaro and Malvasia Nera vines, all trained using the typical "Alberello Pugliese" method (free-standing bush training) . The vineyard lies near the town of Salice Salentino, about 9km from the Ionion Sea. Capable of producing high quality wines and considered a very active and dynamic company, the Paolo Leo winery is well known for its quality range of wines which it produces wines for everyone to enjoy.
An enjoyable, everyday drinking wine with aromas and flavours of both citrus and tropical fruit, layered with a crisp zesty freshness and a degree of stony minerality.. seems to punch above its lowly appellation in more ways than one.
Perfect with seafood or as an aperitif.
The grapes are selected from the best vineyards in the Trapani area. The Pinot Grigio is picked in early August, whilst the Catarratto is picked in the second half of September. After destemming, grapes are gently pressed. Fermentation takes place at controlled temperatures not exceeding 18°C for approximately 3 weeks. Malolactic fermentation does not take place. After the fermentation of Catarratto is finished, the two wines are blended and kept on fine lees until the end of December.
