How typically Italian to claim that Syrah grows better on the Island of Sicily than anywhere else in the world, particularly over its heartland in the French Rhône; but then that is Aldo Viola for you - provocative, individual and with a twinkle in his eye. The same can be said for his wine. Here the red fruits and perfume you’d expect from a Rhône Syrah shine through, the Sicilian twist is the juicy black olive that sits at its heart, dark and saline and only increasing in prominence the longer you leave the wine to age - if you can keep your hands off it. There is a bitter chocolate note too, a touch of balsamic in the acidity and a chalky texture to the tannins. A wine that can only be from Sicily.
