"Bright red. Perfumed aromas and flavors of red fruit cocktail and flint. Suave and sweet in the mouth, showing a layered texture as well as a penetrating quality. Finishes very pure and long, with lovely mineral lift and a strong floral note. A knockout wine; you’ll have a hard time putting the glass back down."~I.D.

Santa Tresa PuratoPurato is a line of certified organic wines from Vittoria in southern SicilyThe vineyards and winery have undergone strenuous controls into to obtain organic certification from Bioagricert, whose certifications are recognized in the United States. Purato celebrates the regions unique micorclimate and extensive winemaking history. Lying close to the Mediterranean, Purato's vineyards benefit from cooling sea breezes. The estate's soil consists of a layer of light, red, sandy loam (terra rossa) resting on top of a limestone base, which helps retain vital water. In order to preserve this rich terroir, only natural techniques are used to assist cultivation. While the abundant wind and scarce rainfall naturally protect against pest, infestations are further prevented through limited copper and sulfur treatments and "sexual confusion" pheromone traps. In addition, only natural fertilizers are used to avoid introducing chemicals into the topsoil. Subterranean irrigation is utilized to prevent evaporation, thereby maximizing water efficiency. To further emphasize Purato's commitment to the stewardship of Sicily's land, Purato's packaging is entirely eco-friendly; labels are made using recycled paper and vegetable dyes, cartons are made from recycled paper and the bottles are 85% recycled glass.

Bert

Great light bodied red

"Very reminiscent of a Pinto Noir with strawberry and spice notes."

John

Tried the wine with the food pairing recommended on the bottle

"This wine has the color and body of a Pinot Noir; but, it has the a dryer fruit and just the right hint of tannin to match with grilled tuna. We used the Sicilian Tuna recipe from Epicurious.com. Garlic, Kalamata olives, capers, tomatoes, etc.,what's not to love. Great QPR."
