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 20 kilogram 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
