2020 Colomba Bianca Insolia Sicilia D.O.C

$35.00

‘Resilience’

Resilience Insolia is a D.O.C Sicilia wine

It is straw yellow with green hues and a bouquet of decisive modern notes, fruity and floral.

Delicate hints of peach, melon and citrus fruits refresh the mouth. It has a pleasant and delicate character with an excellent balance between its sapidity and acidity.

Elegant persistence of flavour makes for delightful drinking. Ideal as an aperitif and pairs super well with fried seafood and fish carpaccio.

Description

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

Colomba Bianca created a range of wines that carry the name ‘Resilience’ for a good reason. After an entire zone of vineyards was wiped out due to earthquakes in the 80’s, most wine producers left the area, abandoning their ruined crops and lands from fear of history repeating itself.

 

The winemakers at Colomba Bianca’s wine estate in this area instead decided to stay, fixing their wine crops and renaming this estate ‘Resilience’. Today, to honour the spirit of dedication and hope of the Sicilian Wine making community, all the wines produced from that same historical estate now carry the same name ‘Resilience’.

 

Insolia is renowned for its freshness and delightful mix of fruity and floral flavours. Being a Sicilian wine, the Insolia grapes have grown on highly volcanic soil, meaning a delicious slight minerality dances on the tongue when tasted.

 

To really honour the elegance and uniqueness of this dry white, I would pair foods that closely replicate the dishes of its traditional origin – Sicily (the seaside town of Trapani to be exact). For this reason, Insolia will shine as an accompaniment to an entrée of fish carpaccio, prawn cocktail, sushi, or other shellfish dishes.

 

If you’re not one for seafood, don’t fear! This wine is a wonderful match to lighter meals with vegetable bases; think light salads, corn chips with guacamole, or a light risotto. I’ve recently enjoyed a few bottles with friends over some creamy cheese on fresh herby baguettes, which was quite lovely.

The Winery

Colomba Bianca is a Sicilian Vine Growers Cooperative located in Western Sicily, Italy. It was founded in 1970 and today is one of the biggest Sicilian Cooperative.

 

The company today can count on 2500 partners and extends along 7500 hectares of vineyards 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: chalky, clay and sandy soils.

 

Colomba Bianca is one of the biggest producers of organic wine in Europe with 1.800 ha of organic vineyards. Quality is their strength: we study deeply their terroir and each year they publish a book where all these findings are detailed in order to provide useful knowledge to wine farmers, oenologists, communicators and customers. Their sense of community and respect of their terroir is admirable.

 

The sustainability of their wines is not limited to the organic production but is extended to other concepts such as support to their winegrowers throughout the production cycle, the health of workers in the vineyard, guaranteed by the absence of pesticides in the organic vineyards, the health of consumers: the use of sulphites in Colomba Bianca wines is very limited in order to ensure greater digestibility of the same; the presence of sulphites in the organic wines is significantly lower than the legal limits, and vegan certification of their wines.
