Region: Sicily, Italy
Summary: Love Not War brings together a collective of like-minded winemakers from around the world united by their belief in organic farming. Enabling them to showcase classic wine styles delivered from the most sought-after wine regions. Hand-crafted thoughtfully using premium organically farmed fruit and minimal winemaking intervention resulting in vibrant, full flavoured, vegan friendly wines.
Winemaking: The grapes are softly pressed, then left in contact with the skins for 12 hours at 10C for extraction of the aromas. Fermentation takes place at 14-16C, after that the wine is left on its lees at a constant temperature. Prior to bottling the wine goes through a very gentle filtration.
Vintage 2020: 2020 will be seen as a fair vintage for Sicily with no major issues, being dry in winter with no drought. There was no unusual heatwave but a cold snap in March slowed down the growth cycle. June and July saw just heat and sun and a little rain. At the end of July temperatures dropped and there unusual rainfall, which re-balanced reserves of moisture. The quality of the grapes was good and the aromatic profile is excellent due to temperature changes.
Tasting Note: Slightly opaque with yellow hues and a captivating nose of citrus, grilled nuts, honeysuckle and dried mountain herbs. The palate delivers a rounded mouthfeel of bright peach fruit with secondary nutty notes and an interesting minerality. Fine but persistent acidity draws out the long finish. A great pairing for vitello tonnato or crumbed pork with fennel.
