Producer Note
Established in 1970, Colomba Bianca is the largest Sicilian grower cooperative and
the biggest Italian producer of organic wine, with more than 1,800 hectares
dedicated to organically farmed vines. Colomba Bianca also has a further 7,500
hectares of vineyard, growing indigenous and international varieties. Despite their
size, they engage a philosophy of micro-viticulture and micro-winemaking to ensure
the ultimate precision, quality and expression of terroir. The stunning range of single
variety and innovative blends are tailor made under the watchful eye of head
winemaker Mattia Filippi. Dynamic and passionate, the Cantine is constantly
evolving with investments in the vineyards and in the technology of their five specialist
wineries. With their sights firmly fixed on the future of Sicilian wine, Colomba Bianca is
rapidly becoming one of the leading names in organic winemaking in Italy.
Vineyard
Sicily's beloved Nero'Avola is famed for its deep, rich wines and is considered by
some to be the island's most important red variety. Here in these sun-drenched
vineyards, the highest standards are attained through the use of innovative
technology and the careful process of mapping the terroir according to the weather
patterns, harvesting time, soils and vine age. The grapes undergo a sensory analysis
and are hand harvested at the optimum maturity levels, according to the terroir and
microclimate of the vineyard. They are then harvested into 20kg containers, to
prevent the grapes from being prematurely crushed. The vineyards are made up of
distinct soil and climate conditions and range from sea-level up to 700 metres above
sea level, imparting subtle complexity into the wine.
Winemaking
The grapes were meticulously selected, then destemmed and crushed.
Fermentation took place with the skins and carefully selected yeasts, at controlled
temperatures in stainless steel tanks. 50% of the wine was matured in French oak
barrels for a period of six months.
Tasting Note
An intense bouquet of rich brambly fruits with a seductive note of black pepper
spice. Concentrated on the palate with juicy blackberry and ripe plum flavours,
which are beautifully balanced by velevety tannins. Long and elegant on the finish,
this is quintessential Nero d'Avola.
Serving Suggestion
This wine has the intensity to match rich, meaty full-flavoured dishes and is perfect
with a juicy, pan fried steak.
