From the slopes of Mount Etna in Sicily comes this delectable red that is the epitome of old school Italian winemaking. Calabretta is a traditional winery that's putting a spin on classic Sicilian varietals, blending extra wine left over from their acclaimed long-aging single vintages into a more youthful wine. The altitude and wind on the slopes of Mt. Etna contribute to reducing disease and pest pressure, allowing winemaker Massimiliano Calabretta to use minimal intervention in the vineyards. The ‘Cala Cala’ bianco is made with 100% grillo from black volcanic soils that is fermented and aged in stainless steel. It has a lovely roundness on the palate with a citrus-dominated profile with the addition of pear and golden apple. The acidity is medium in nature with a touch of saline minerality on the finish. Organically grown, low-intervention/natural wine, vegan.
