2017 Possente Kima
The Possente Kima is made with 60% Cataratto, 30% Grillo and 10% Viognier. Cataratto is the most widely planted white wine grape in Sicily. Cataratto is a vigorous variety, with a good resistance to the most common grape diseases. Cataratto wines are generally fresh with a medium structure, a mild acidity and a moderate alcohol level. Their aromatic profile is typically associated with citrus fruit and flowers (lemon zest, wild oranges and citrus blossoms), tropical fruit such as grapefruit and passionflower with a touch of fine herbs and sweet spices.
Planted in clay loam hills with a high mineral quality the wine is spontaneously fermented in stainless steel. The Kima's strong personality is characterised by a fruity and floral bouquet, round and elegant in the mouth. The white peach and exotic fruits melt with flowers of the Mediterranean making its bouquet intense and complete. On the palate it has a smooth and pleasant minerality. Catarratto is a very versatile wine that pairs well with fish, seafood, white meats, grilled vegetables and soft goat cheese.
