Alessandro Viola 2019 Rosso IsiRegular price £22
"But who are we to think we can do better than nature" says Alessandro Viola. Alessandro tends five hectares on Sicily's Mount Bonifato on the north coast, and his approach is very much about working naturally in the vineyard. He simply mows between rows and ploughs by hand around the vines – usually once or twice each season. The result is excellent fruit, and wines of great purity made simply. Rosso Isi is an 'isi'-going wine, with bright red fresh fruit disguising an underlying richness and complexity which really emerges after a few hours. A pitch-perfect Mediterranean red.
Fermented and aged in stainless steel. Only a small amount of sulphur at bottling.
|Blend||70% Nero d’Avola, 30% Nerello Mascalese|
