Catarratto Bianco

The second most-planted light skinned varietal in Italy, most notably the island of Sicily, where it dominates the western portion of the island. Used in great quantities in Marsala, a wine that can be made in either sweet or dry styles, although a large portion is also used to make industrial alcohol. The Catarratto has two forms: the Comune, a major player in the lake of surplus European wine, and the much higher quality Lucido. When made with care the Lucido version can boast flavors of grapefruits and apricots, with a backbone of firm acidity.
