Alessandro Viola - 2020 Note di Bianco

2020 Note di Bianco

Sicily, Italy 

Alessandro Viola's father was a vine grower, although other than a few bottles of homemade wine he never saw the fruit of his hard work in the vineyard into bottle. From an early age Alessandro was fascinated by grape growing, and after a few vintages of self-teaching he decided to study oenology. During his university studies he steered away from the mechanical side of winemaking that was being taught and decided to study the science. The idea that nothing needed to be added or taken away from the wine if the grapes, soil and winemaking were all working together, became his mantra. This purist mantra – with the utmost respect for natural symbiosis – has guided him ever since, in the vineyard and the winery.

Alessandro's 2020 Note di Bianco is crafted from 100% Grillo, from the Vineyards in Pietra Rinosa. Aromas of ripe yellow fruits, marzaipan and white flowers set the stage for a fresh and savoury performance with a lonf persistence. Clay based soil and proximity to the ocean gives the Grillo a distinct saline finish. Encore.
