Bubbles - Porta del Vento, Pét Nat!

"Voria" Pétillant Naturel

Region: Sicily, Italy

Grapes: Catarratto

Organic, Biodynamic, Pétillant Naturel

This wine is very fun. It's the one you want to bring to your holiday parties for a perfect aperitif. With a somewhat frothy texture, this tropical treat from up high in the hills above Palermo Italy is one you want to start your night (or morning) off with. To me, it can be breakfast wine, lunch wine, or anytime wine. 

Winemaker and artist Marco Sferlazzois making some of the most exciting, wines in all of Sicily. The tiny, Porta del Vento winery sits 2000 feet above Palermo, near the village of Camporeale, an area of Sicily where nature can be very harsh. He farms at high elevation, on incredibly steep slopes, this area is known for constant, brutal winds, blowing through the vineyards. These ever-present winds, along with the large, diurnal, temperature range, allow for wines of great concentration, character, low alcohol and racy acidity.

Tasting notes: Pineapple, banana, mango, and sunflower.  

What is pétillant naturel or pet nat? It's any sparkling wine made in the méthode ancestrale, meaning the wine is bottled before primary fermentation is finished, without the addition of secondary yeasts or sugars. It ferments in the bottle. Thus, pet nat wine is a low sugar wine.
