Aldo is from a winemaking family in Sicily, taking the vineyard over in 2000. With 16 hectares across two sites in Alcamo, Aldo uses a rigid selection process to ensure the grapes fit his natural standards of production. to make experimental wines that express terroir. Another thing we love about Aldo Viola is the way he uses skin contact in much of his portfolio. Orange wine, as it's known, is a category of wine made with white wine grapes. Rather than press the grapes immediately, orange wine is made by allowing the white grapes to rest on its skins for an extended period of time (usually 12 hours up to a few weeks or months.) Krimiso is a 100% Cattarano wine that has 5 months in stainless steel, giving it a vibrant, hazy orange color. Egesta is 100% Grillo, also with 5 months in stainless steel. Italians are known for their orange wines, and Aldo is no exception to making a stellar expression of the style!
