Keep it natural, baby.
Porta del Vento, "Saharay" Catarratto - white wine with a bright temperament. Grapes of Katarratto variety are able to produce excellent wines even in the most extreme conditions. "Saharay" is the result of prolonged maceration on the peel for 30 days in open oak vats and 2 years of aging. The unusual, concentrated taste of this wine is worthy to at least once in a lifetime open the veil in a world of completely different, unusual white wines.
The winery of Porta del Vento , owned by Marco Sferlazzo , is located in a beautiful valley in the province of Palermo. 10 hectares of the company's vineyards were planted between 1974 and 1984 along steep north-facing slopes to protect the vines from too much sunlight. The terrain is very windy, with large fluctuations in diurnal temperatures. To date, all vineyards have organic certificates. At the winery Marco Sferlazzo also adheres to the philosophy of non-interference in the natural process: the harmony and energy of the grapes are transferred to the wine, thus expressing the nature of the terroir. All without exception, the fault of Marco Sferlazzo is captivated from the first sip and ready to talk about the inimitable beauty of Sicily.
