It is better to visit Alessandro Viola personally to find out more about him, the winery and his wines. He cares very little about wine expertise, online marketing, advertising in general. He prefers to work in his 20 hectares of vineyards or in the cellar.
"In wine there is a perfect chemical balance, only nature can go that far, who We are we to do better than nature?"
If the result is such impressively elegant wines from the hot region of Sicily, then we should be right.
First of all, we liked the playful bottles and labels. When it came to tasting, we were really surprised: we have never had such idiosyncratic yet elegant white wines from the island in our tasting glasses.
The vineyards are about 200 meters above sea level, face north-west and are dominated by clay and limestone soils.
Alessandro Viola works organically, bottles his wines unfiltered and tries to avoid sulphurization as far as possible.
