High up in the Abruzzo mountains, Pecorino ‘Giulia’ produced by Luigi Cataldi Madonna, is named in homage to his beloved daughter Giulia. Fragrant with passion fruit, lime, grapefruit and fresh herbs. Zesty acidity compliments ripe fruit flavours of melon and red apple. It makes a great aperitif or pairs beautifully with raw fish and shellfish. The wine is aged on the lees post fermentation in stainless steel tank to give depth and body, after three months it is bottled and ready for release.
Purity of fruit and elevated expressions of indigenous grape varieties are what define the winemaking style of the Cataldi Madonna winery in Italy’s Abruzzo. Following in his father’s footsteps, second generation winemaker, Luigi Cataldi, has taken the Cataldi Madonna winery to new heights following the modernisation, replanting and renovation of the original site which was founded in 1920. Situated in Ofena, Cataldi Madonna lies at the heart of a natural amphitheatre carved from the foothills of the Gran Sasso mountain range. Known as the “oven of Abruzzo”, this location offers extraordinary sun exposure to over 65 hectares of the Cataldi Madonna winery, as well as high altitudinal temperature variations and soil characteristics that make the region particularly suited to viticulture.
