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.
Vintage
The winter and early spring season was characterised by mild and cool conditions, with
humid nights. The late spring to summer period saw an almost total absence of rain,
with less than 300mm combined with the absence of the typical African sirocco winds.
Careful soil management was required, along with judicious use of green manure to
nourish the vines and avoid hydric stress. The vintage was lower in quantity compared
to previous years, but the quality was high, with aromatic whites and red wines
showing a considerable polyphenolic content.
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. The wine 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.
