Krimiso Cataratto Aldo Viola (Orange Wine) 100% Cataratto, Natural wine of immense character, wild herbs and citrus characters: orange wine with subtly – approachable and fine. Although the maceration time with the skins for Krimiso runs into the months, the extraction is gentle, Aldo uses patience and time rather than mixing and pumping over to let the soft, delicate flavours of the Cataratto grapes and skin contact develop slowly. The wine is very fine in youth, taut and citrussy, with notes of wild herbs, minerals and very fine tannins. Delicious wine, the new wave of Sicilian wines are truly delicious.

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.

    I discovered this wine in a high end restaurant and had to track down a supplier so I could drink it more often. It’s utterly delicious and works well in virtually any scenario and with any dish. Highly recommended.
