2019 Calabretta 'Minnella' Bianco, Sicily, Italy
Our café and market have gotten quite busy this season, so we've had to disable online pre-ordering for the time being.
Not to worry, though— our entire inventory is still available in-store. We look forward to seeing your beautiful faces!
Waxy lemon, tarragon, salty minerality, and a nerve of acidity provides texture and body to this delightful island wine. From 100% Minnella grapes, which is usually drunk up by locals and tourists, rarely leaving the island for export markets, what a treat!
Massimiliano Calabretta is the 4th generation of his family to craft wines on the steep slopes on Mt Etna in Sicily. He follows the centuries old traditions of the volcanic region, protecting and preserving the distinctive land, using only organic methods and minimal intervention. He farms about 7 hectares of old vines, many ungrafted and 80+ years in age.
