2016 Alessandro Viola Note di Grillo
Alessandro Viola was fascinated in wine from an early age. His father was a grape grower and after a few vintages of self-teaching he decided to get a formal education and study oenology. The idea that nothing needed to be added or taken away from the wine if the grapes, soil and winemaking was exact and done well. After his university degree he worked in the north of Italy and then for a larger winemaker on Mt Etna, however he never forgot the wines he had made before, without anything added and made by hand. He cultivates 7 hectares of organic vines in the north-western part of Sicily near Alcamo.
