'CALA' MEANS 'GULP' IN SICILIAN DIALECT...JUST SAYIN'
Channeling that sunny Sicilian holiday in a bottle. Pass the plate of fritto misto, please...
Via the importer:
'Cala Bianco is Dario Serrentino from Mortellito's spin on the white grapes from the northwest of Sicilia. He works with the specific clone of Catarratto that's called 'Catarratto Extra Lucido' - Extra Shiny Catarratto - which gives wines with more texture, depth, and color that the common Catarratto usually found throughout Sicilia.
Dario is known for making highly drinkable and sea-breeze salty island wines. Seeking to tweak the acidity even more, he picks early in August instead of September.'
