The Catarratto is a white grape variety widely planted in Sicily, especially in the Trapani area, and take its name from its high yield. Although appreciated by the public, the Catarratto has recently seen a decrease in its production to the benefits of International varieties. However, a few wine makers have kept growing Catarratto and produced high quality wines by reducing its yield.
Catarratto grown in and around the town of Marsala is also used in the production of Marsala Oro and Ambra.
