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
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 situated in
the south west of the island and 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 hand-picked in small cases of 20kg between late August and the
first days of September, once they had reached their optimum maturity. A
maceration on the skins took place at low temperatures for two days for the
extraction of tannins and colour. Fermentation took place at 20°C in small, stainless
steel tanks for approximately 12 days, retaining the aromatics and flavour profiles of
both the Nero d'Avola and Syrah varieties.
Tasting Note
Intense blackberry and violet aromas, lead to a juicy, fruity palate with supple
tannins and wonderful structure, all wrapped up with a warm and spicy finish.
Serving Suggestion
A versatile red, which accompanies cured meats, pasta and rich beef dishes.
