Alessandro Viola was fascinated in wine from an early age. 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 was drilled into him by his grape growing father. Simphona is a wonderful and different example of Grillo. Aged on skins in Chestnut barrels for seven months its pallet is deep and ripe with herbaceous high tones. It is made from 100% Grillo from the Vineyards in Pietra Rinosa. This clay based soil and proximity to the ocean gives the Grillo a distinct salty finish.
