Made from Nerello Mascalese
A brilliant fruit-forward red with some slight effervescence. Berries and spices are most apparent, and with a bit of concentration you get some dried fruit with a dab of salt. Should be enjoyed with meals - like a nice bistek tagalog, or spaghetti bolognese.
About the Winemaker
"In wine there is a perfect chemical balance, only nature can go that far, who We are we to do better than nature?"
Alessandro Viola is a small biodynamic producer who makes wine on a 7 ha plot in Alcamo on the island of Sicily. His vineyard is on a hillside 220 m above sea level - providing a sea breeze that cools the grapes against the Sicilian heat.
Alessandro draws from his formal education in enology and viticulture and his winemaking experience throughout Europe. His philosophy is simple - use only the finest grapes and good wine will happen. He does not use any herbicides or fertilizers with the belief that adding anything throws off the natural balance of the land.
