Details

Guarini Syrah Coccinella Aldo Viola, biodynamic wine, 100% Syrah, stainless steel, dark fruit freshness with subtle spice. Aldo Viola is somewhat of a cool dude, he personifies Sicilian style, originality and a touch of the crazy. His wines reflect his personality, he says he wants to make 'power wines made by nature'. He harvests purity and with his personality and great understanding of his terroir and grapes applies his own unique expression. This Syrah is super cool, a silky texture and refreshing sappidity is backed up with pure dark fruit and spice that is quintessentially syrah. A note of black olive on the finish completes this distinctively Sicilian expression of an international grape. Superb wine, bravo Aldo!

Aldo Viola's organic estate comprises of 16 hectares split between two sites near the city of Alcamo on the northwestern coast of Sicily. A rigorous selection process assures that only the highest quality grapes are used, ensuring the label Viola lives up to its 4 generation reputation. Production is small, around 10000 bottles per year across 4 labels, which means that Aldo can oversee the entire process personally. Their soils are extremely healthy, thanks to organic cultivation alongside some biodynamic practices, which also gives the wine a strong territorial identity. The wines are bottled without filtration and with a minimum of sulphites.
