Crunchy salty citrus! I'd love to say more but I don't want to ruin the experience of your first (perhaps) Cataratto/Inzolia wine from the Aeolian Island of Salina. It's so good, trust me!

Carlo Hauner was an extraordinary man. Born in Brescia in 1927, Carlo established a brilliant international reputation as an artist and designer. Visiting the Aeolian Islands off the coast of Sicily for the first time in 1963, he fell in love with their natural beauty and, in particular, the famous Malvasia dessert wines.  These seven volcanic islands, now UNESCO World Heritage Sites, had been left decimated by mass emigration, much of it to Australia, following phylloxera and two world wars.  Carlo is credited with bringing the Islands Malvasia dolce back to life, described by Gambero Rosso as “flaunting nuances of Mediterranean scrubland and delicious echoes of candied citrus”. The range also includes a refreshing white from Cataratto and Inzolia; juicy and fruit forward Rosso from Nero d’Avola and Nerello Mascalese and the stunning Hiera, made from Nero d’Avola, Alicante and Nocera.
