Alessandro Viola is a small producer in the northwest corner of Sicily, south of Palermo. He is committed to the local varieties: Catarratto, Grillo, Nero d'Avola and Nerello Mascalese. His style is unique and his commitment to organic and biodynamic practices with no additions is central to his winemaking philosophy.
Alessandro Viola made this late harvest Grillo after a particularly hot Sicilian summer and it is a treat.
full-bodied nectar, richly sweet, notes of apricots, raisins, and fresh flowers with spun sugar all gracefully woven together with balanced acidity and a hint of salinity - Viola is one of the best winemakers around and this wine shows it.
