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
Catarrato is a native Sicilian variety that is cultivated on the hills overlooking the
Mediterranean Sea. 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 handpicked at their optimum maturity and vinified in small stainless
steel tanks to retain the freshness and purity of fruit of the Cataratto variety. A gentle
pressing and static clarification of the must took place at 12°C for 24 hours, followed
by fermentation at 16°C with selected yeasts. The wine rested in tank for five months,
preserving all the aromatics, prior to its release.
Tasting Note
Aromatic and light with a deliciously refreshing acidity, this wine show beautiful
balance and a delicate mineral character on the vibrant finish.
Serving Suggestion
A refreshing aperitif wine. Serve with light dishes, such as a tuna and caper salad; or
white meat with a delicate sauce.
