The Colomba Bianca winery was founded in 1970. During the last 10 years, under the guidance of our Chairman Leonardo Taschetta, it has become one of 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. WINEMAKING: Occurs with selected yeasts, with a maceration of 12 days. The temperatures vary between 26-28°C in order to favor the extraction of the color contained in the grape skins. The separation of the pomace occurs on the fifth day to maintain the tannins of the wine smooth. After the malolactic fermentation, which occurs spontaneously, the wine is refined in 500lt. barrels and 225lt. barriques for approximately one year, with a rest on suspended yeasts using the batonnage technique MATURATION IN BOTTLE: one month before commercialization.

The aftertaste has toasted scents and red berries of a very persistent aroma.
