2019 Mortellito Rosso Calaniuru

$25

Combining the freshness and juiciness of the Frappato grape to the dark fruited, earthy notes of the Nero d'Avola grape, this chillable red offers red berry aromas laced with herbal nuance and fine tannins.


Mortellito came to be in 2014. After years of selling off his grapes to the likes of natural Sicilian wine legends such as Frank Cornelissen and Lamoresca, Dario Serrentino decided to start bottling his own wine. His goal from the start was to produce natural wines that are as clean and transparent as possible. He uses no chemical pesticides or fertilizers. And he grows all the vines in the old-fashioned bush vine system (technically, “albarello” or “gobelet”), where each vine grows like a little grape tree. This approach means everything must be done by hand in the vineyard; machines can’t prune or harvest these vines. But it seems to work: preserving moisture, shading the grapes from hot sun and working who knows what other kinds of viticultural magic.
