Winemaker Dario Serrentino believes that the desert-like calcareous soils, and cool night air here, help temper alcohol, while giving freshness.
With the CALA bottling, Dario co-fermented musky, red-fruited Nero d’Avola, with the lightening acidity of Grillo. CALA, the word for ‘grape’ in Sicilian dialect, highlights the limestone terroir, and Dario’s natural winemaking touch. It drinks like a welcome oasis of shade, restorative and invigorating. Good with a slight chill.
All the dark berry fruit and spicy Sicilian appeal of a classic Nero d'Avola, but lifted with a splash of Grillo (native white) for completely fresh balance and drinkability. A great bottle for any night of the week.
