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.
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 2020 vintage was lower in quantity
compared to previous years, but the quality was high, with aromatic white wines.
Grillo is the illustrious grape of Sicily and here it is produced from chalky, south-facing
vineyards from the southwestern part of the island. 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.
The grapes were hand-picked at optimum maturity and then vinified in small stainless
steel tanks to retain the freshness and purity of fruit of the Grillo variety. A soft pressing 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 four months with yeast contact imparting
richness to the texture whilst preserving the aromatics.
Tasting Note
Bursting with Sicilian sunshine, this fragrant wine has a lifted bouquet of sun-ripened
citrus and tropical fruits. Refreshing and dry on the palate with a ripe roundness leading
to a mouthwatering finish.
