Battista, Lustro Abbazia San Giorgio,Cataratto

GRAPE: 100% Catarratto
REGION: Pantelleria, Sicily

GOOD TO KNOW: Have ever been to Pantelleria? We highly recommend to go soon or later! Pantelleria is a very special island. The black volcanic cone lost in the Mediterranean between Sicily and Africa is an expression of an intense character and a strong identity that can be found even in the simplest agricultural products. Battista Belvisi, farmer and winemaker, along with a long time friend Beppe Fontana 12 years ago founded Abbazia San Giorgio, with eight and a half acres of vines on the outskirts of the village of Khamma.  Divided into small plots 900 feet above sea level, the vines are on average 60 years old. Two thirds are cultivated with Zibibbo grapes, while the remaining are Carignano, Nerello Mascalese, and Pignatello (known by the natives as “Nostrale”). The vines are trained in the traditional practice of Vite ad Alberello, a technique that is believed to have been first developed by the Phoenicians who arrived on the island more than 2,500 years ago.  Vite ad Alberello is included on the UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity, the first of its kind to have received this prestigious distinction. Floreal, sapidity, mineral
