2017 Alessandro Viola Note di Rosso
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. This blend of Nero D'Avola 80%, Syrah 10%, Nerello Mascalese 10%. Vineyards is made up from both vineyard sites in Fastuchera and Pietra Rinosa. The grapes see a short 10 day maceration on skins and spend 6 months in barrel before being bottled unfiltered and unsulphured. To drink this is pure joy in a glass, Bright, juicy and seriously slurp-able.
