2019 Mortellito Calaiancu Bianco

Sicily, Italy

From selling his grapes for years to the likes of Frank Cornelissen, Dario has been trying his own hand in the cellar for the past 5 years and we think it's paid-off pretty well. The Calaiancu is his mineral driven white made mostly from Grillo with a small amount of Catarratto. Dario is is a true advocate of terroir and insists on making wines that strongly reflect where they come from. Calaiancu encapsulates that swimmingly with its aromas of fresh oranges, sea spray, white flowers and a rich texture lifted by great acidity.

About the maker

For years Dario Serrentino has been selling off his grapes to the likes of Frank Cornelissen and Lamoresca, until 2014 when he decided he would try his hand in the cellar.

The heat of the Sicilian summer is balance nicely for Mortellito with the prominence of limestone in the soils. Allowing the wines to retain a freshness that would otherwise disappear. In the vineyard Dario farms organically and in the cellar no additives, temperature controlled ferments or nasties are introduced. He's insistent on letting the natural wines speak to his vineyard. Less about his winemaking skills and more about the place.
