Valdibella - Ninfa 2021
This orange wine is made from the rare variety Catarratto Extra Lucido, a mutation with soft skins and a more delicate profile than its relative Catarratto. Two weeks of skin contact, 6 months in steel tanks, and bottled with no additions. It's a proper orange wine with colour and structure, and an incredible aromatic profile of ginger and apricots. Saline, bold, and surprising.
Made by the team at Valdibella, an impressive and inspiring cooperative based in Sicily's west who have a huge focus on biodiverse farmlands, an active social impact, and are part of the Addiopizzo anti-mafia movement.
