Description

The vineyards of Colomba Bianca are made up of distinct soil and climate conditions and range from sea-level up to 700 metres above sea level, each terroir imparting subtle complexity into the wine. For their Vitese Syrah, grapes are hand harvested from low yield vines and are delicately destemmed before maceration at low temperatures on the skins to extract colour and soft tannins. Fermentation is in stainless steel, with malolactic conversion and 8 months' further ageing in steel to preserve purity.

This creates a wine with an abundance of ripe red berried fruit and blackberry aromas, complemented by subtle hints of violet. Structured and full bodied with supple tannins, the enveloping and penetrating red berry flavours continue through to the long, aromatic finish. Try with charcuterie, roast or barbecue red meats and vegetables, or mature hard cheeses.

Established in 1970, Colomba Bianca is the largest Sicilian grower cooperative and the biggest Italian producer of organic wine. Despite their size, they engage a philosophy of micro-viticulture and micro-winemaking to ensure the ultimate precision, quality and expression of terroir. 

Organic and suitable for Vegans & Vegetarians
