2019 Le Mie Origini
Alessandro Viola’s 2019 Le Mie Origini comprises 100% Catarratto, from 30+-year-old vines planted on clay, limestone soil at 500-600 metres altitude. After a manual harvest at the end of September, the grapes were destemmed and pressed into chestnut botti. Fermentation took place with indigenous yeasts, without additions or temperature control. Afterwards, the wine was aged for nine months on its lees in chestnut botti.
You are met with a deep, golden-yellow color and a characterful, intense nose, filled with aromas of tropical fruit, honey, flowers and nuts. It’s close to full-bodied, round and rich, with notes of juicy peaches and fresh hay on the palate—an extremely food-friendly wine made for full-flavoured dishes. You will love it!
