2020 Alessandro Viola Nero D'Avola Rosé
The 2020 Alessandro Viola Nero D'Avola Rosé is juicy bright, easy drinking with red cherries, strawberries, hints of citrus and light minerality.
The grapes used are from younger vines grown in clay and sandy soils at around 250 meters elevation. With minimal ageing in steel tank for 6 months.
Alessandro Viola's father was a vine grower, although other than a few bottles of homemade wine he never strove to produce his own wines commercially. From an early age Alessandro was fascinated with grape growing, and after a few vintages of self-learning and discovery he decided to truely progress his craft he'd need to study oenology. During his studies he steered away from the more mechanical side of winemaking that was being taught, studying the science instead. His idea was that nothing needed to be added or taken away from the wine, if the grapes, soil and winemaking were all working together. This belief has guided him ever since.
