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
Nero d'Avola has long been the most important grape on the island of Sicily, thriving
in the heat of the Mediterranean sunshine. 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 vineyards are made up of distinct soil and climate
conditions and range from sea-level up to 700 metres above sea level, each terroir
imparting subtle complexity into the wine. The grapes undergo a sensory analysis
and are hand-picked at optimum maturity. The grapes are harvested into 20
kilogram containers, to prevent them from being prematurely crushed.


Winemaking
The manual harvest took place during between the end of August and the
beginning of September. The grapes were macerated on their skins at low
temperatures, for 48 hours, in order to extract sweet, delicate tannins and colour.
Fermentation took place in stainless steel tanks at controlled temperatures of
approximately 20°C and lasted for 12 days, followed by five months in stainless steel
tanks to retain the purity of fruit.
