The Azienda Agricola Aldo Viola covers 12 hectares of which 9 have vineyards near Alcamo in Western Sicily. For Aldo Viola wines are the result of a passion, designed to be free of any standardization. The unpredictability of spontaneous fermentations and the purity of its grape juice without any kind of added or subtracted substances create a magic, a mirror of the exaltation of a very suitable territory. The wines are not subject to any filtration, clarification, stabilization or addition of sulfites. In the vineyard the naturalistic approach based on organic farming techniques combined with biodynamic concepts tend to enhance a management aimed at producing wines that contain a strong territorial identity.
The Catarratto vines for this Krimiso white wine grow in Aldo Viola’s calcareous clay vineyards outside Monreale at an altitude of 350 m. The grapes were manually harvested, sorted, and delicately de-stemmed and left to ferment and macerate using natural yeasts on the skins for 150 days in stainless steel tanks where malolactic fermentation also took place. The wine was kept on the lees in stainless steel tanks for 5 months. The wine was bottled without pressing and filtration.
Longevity 3-5 years.
