Mortellito Viara Moscato Bianco 2020
Mortellito came to be in 2014. After years of selling off his grapes to the likes of natural Sicilian wine legends such as Frank Cornelissen and Lamoresca, Dario Serrentino decided to start bottling his own wine. His goal from the start was to produce natural wines that are as clean and transparent as possible. The Mortellito wines capture freshness, and are deeply terroir transparent. They capture the magic of great Sicilian wines: hedonistic fruit tempered by assertive minerality and fresh acidity. They use no sulfur in the winemaking except a small amount at bottling. The wines of Mortellito are full of vibrancy and life; prime examples of how natural winemaking and viticulture can adapt to our changing world to produce wines that are balanced, pretty and down right delicious. 100% Moscato di Noto, made with just a touch of skin contact (two days). Fresh and floral, this is a lovely and versatile Sicilian white.
