Mortellito Calaniuru Rosso 2019


Styled somewhat on the classic Cerasuolo wines of the nearby Vittoria region, the Calaniuru is driven predominantly by the achingly bright freshness of Frappato, delivering pulpy red cherry and strawberry fruit laden with herbal, almost tea like savoriness and lithe earthy tannins. The Nero lends a little added chutzpah and brooding spice but make no mistake, this is still a decidedly light-handed wine. Fresh and eminently sluggable, this is a bottle that takes perfect to a light chill and a sun-dappled afternoon.
