Cantina Marilina NV 'Fedelie' Bianco Frizzante
Origin: Sicily, Italy
Grape(s): 100% Moscato (dry!)
This slightly sparkling (or "frizzante") white wine is perfect for sipping on the patio on a sunny afternoon! Moscato has a reputation as being an extremely sweet wine, but this is actually quite dry...with lovely, delicate notes of pear, citrus, and even peach. The beautiful label features two sisters dancing in the grape vines - so sweet!
A little bit about the Vineyard from Cara Rutherford's blog:
Cantina Marilina is an organic winery located in southeastern Sicily, with vineyards in 2 appellations; Noto DOC and Eloro DOC. Founded in 2001 by Angelo Paternò, today the winery is headed by his daughters, sisters Marilina and Federica Paternò. Surrounded by a UNESCO World Heritage Site and wildlife sanctuaries, the sisters are steadfast in their determination to use low intervention, organic, traditional, environmentally friendly methods to craft natural wines with a “strong territorial identity”.
