Colomba Bianca Vitese Nero D'Avola 2022
Colomba Bianca Vitese Nero D'Avola
Colomba Bianca Vitese Nero D'Avola is a brilliant, deep red Nero d'Avola with rich, juicy flavours of ripe plum and black cherries interlaced with subtle violet notes. Concentrated on the palate, the deep fruit flavours are supported by soft, ripe tannins and a spicy character on the finish.
Vitese Nero D'Avola is a organic and vegan wine.
It is intense ruby red with a bouquet; very fruity with scents of red berries (cherry, blackberry), fragrant, mineral (graphite), spicy. In the mouth it presents a perfect balance of tannins and acidity, profound taste of great extent and structure, elevated smoothness. Intense, persistent and fine. Pairs well with aperitifs, mature cheese and Ragusano DOP, cold cuts, maialino from the Nebrodi mountains, white and red meats.
The variety is 100% Nero D'Avola. The harvest is hand picked using small crates of 20kg between the end of August and the first days of September. The maceration of the skins takes place at low temperatures for two days to extract the sweet tannins and delicate colour. The alcoholic fermentation takes place at 20°C for circa 12 days.
The Colomba Bianca winery was founded in 1970. During the last 10 years, under the guidance of our Chairman Leonardo Taschetta, it has become the biggest wine growing co-operative in Sicily. The company today, can, in fact, count on circa 2480 partners and extends along 7500 hectars of vineyards between the provinces of Trapani, Palermo, Agrigento, Caltanissetta e Ragusa, with 5 wineries distributed in the whole territory. The vineyards can be found in areas which benefit of a vast pedoclimatic diversity, from the low coastal areas up to an altitude of 600 metres above sea level.
"We work with the aim that our farmers receive the right compensation for their work. This adds dignity to Sicilian agriculture and to the wines which express at best our territory. It is for this reason that each one of our wines is dedicated to our farmers." - Colomba Bianco
