Anfà, Catarratto warm and enveloping

A historical grape for the eloquence of the palates contrary to the past, we start from the end. We're having dinner. A restaurant facing the sea, a bit of wind that refreshes our souls after a particularly hot day: we are in Sicily. Our sommlier we need a label of the Marine Cellars, a catarratto of exception. The range is conditioned by the moment particularly enveloping, from a territory dear to us, from the proximity to the sea. An appetizer of raw sea and a tuna tartare slightly marinated. The chatter is interwoven with the citric, citrus, fresh and vivid scents and sensations of this chalice. The land of this portion of territory contains many stones. The particle size nature of the soil also favours the odorous enrichment of wine. Its flavor, its freshness, its minerality. So the diners tell me an anecdote between the serious and the facetious concerning a local girl. It is said that this young woman was in love with a boy who at the time left for the war. At one time you didn't have a chance to write frequently. Moreover, the difficulties of communication during the war made the expectation of this young woman seduced by the military party now more crude. Fragmented news, combined with the anxiety of this ever-farther return, made this girl very sad and without more hope of meeting her beloved again. A man returned from the war recognized the face of the boy shown in pictures by the woman during a village party. She asked if she remembered the last time she saw him. The man shook his head. He knew that the boy, motivated by a strong passion for his homeland, would never come back. The dismay took hold in the soul of the young woman, dejected and weeping I come home. Disappointed, the next day, he set out on his way to the sea; Before arriving at the apex of the promontory, he bent over the ground and wept. Her tears were gathered from a bitter land that had reserved her sadness and anguish. So he jumped from the cliff and was swallowed by the waves of the sea. Her tears are still there, represented by the countless stones scattered in the ground. Small white drops in the Red Sea of the soil. Tears to remember a love that will never come back.
