dedicated to organically farmed vines. Colomba Bianca also has a further 7,500
hectares of vineyard, growing indigenous and international varieties. Despite their

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
Zibibbo is Sicilian synonym for the more well-known Muscat of Alexandria. It is a local
favourite in Sicily and is known for its aromatic wines. 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 Zibibbo grapes were harvested in late August once they had reached the
desired level of maturity. They were then softly pressed at 0.2 bars and the must was
clarified at 12°C for 24 hours. The must was fermented in stainless steel tanks at
controlled temperatures of 15°C with selected yeasts, to preserve and retain the
aromatic profile of the Zibibbo variety. It rested in stainless steel tank for four months
to retain its varietal character.


Tasting Note
A sensational white wine with vibrant aromas of white peach, sun-ripened citrus and
perfumed notes of orange blossom and delicate jasmine. Aromatic and elegant on
the palate with just a touch of almond on the finish.
