Aldo Viola 'Saignee' Terre Siciliane Rosso, Italy 2018

Born as the son of a vignaiolo, turned professional football player, turned enologist on the turf of the notorious mob boss Salvatore “Totò” Riina, Aldo Viola is a force to be reckoned with.  He is passionate & energetic.  Now working along side his brother Alessadndro, he produces wines as exciting as his personality, implementing minimal intervention in the winemaking process.  His red ferments in steel with a six-or-seven-day maceration, then ages it for a year in large Slavonian oak casks, bottling it with a minuscule dose of sulfur.  His wines are the perfect transition red from summer to fall, being medium bodied but offering up integrated tannins.
