ALESSANDRO VIOLA

Orange Wine

Alessandro Viola, Cataratto 'Le Mie Origini' 2020

Place: Sicily, Italy

Grape: Cataratto

Vibe: Advanced

Mature vine Cataratto, grown at altitude up near Alcamo. Organic farming and extended skin maceration, followed by 9 months on the lees in large chestnut cask. Looking for texture, and he found it. Citrus fruits dominate here, ripping alongside plenty of grip and more than enough acidity to keep things refreshing. A beauty. ABV: 12.5%

Regular price £41.10

Taxes included

Only 2 left

There's more to Sicily than Mount Etna. Case in point. Viola is based up in Alcamo, on the north coast toward Palermo. The family has been growing grapes here for generations, with Alessandro returning home with some international experience and propelling their estate forward. The 5ha of vineyards are planted at 600-700m of altitude, in a mountain pass that benefits from natural groundwater reserves and that obvious Sicilian sunshine. Altitude also means cooler nights, and the preservation of natural acidity, giving freshness to the end wine. Winemaking uses indigenous yeasts and involves minimal SO2 save for stability reasons.
