La Calla is a highly respected winemaker in Italy. The vineyards in the north of Italy, in Veneto are famous. However, Calla also has many vineyards in the somewhat unknown Sicily. Viticulture in Italy has been flourishing for several decades. The wines of Sicily lagged behind somewhat. It had the reputation of cheap mass wines. Fortunately, the tide has turned. The local pride, the nero d'avola is becoming increasingly popular internationally and considerable innovation and investment has gone into the vineyards on this dazzling island.

The popularity of Sicilian wines today is mainly due to one grape: the nero d'avola. The fact that this characteristic grape thrives in Sicily is mainly due to the unique conditions. The slightly volcanic soil and the ideal climate ensure that the Nero d'avola grapes ripen optimally in Sicily. The sun-drenched days, in combination with the fresh breeze from the sea, proves to be great for the development of the grapes. The grapes are harvested manually in the early morning. This is done for two reasons. At this time, the grapes still have a lot of freshness and the chance of oxidation is smaller. In addition, harvesting is done manually so that good selection can be made at the same time. Always only the best trusses should be part of this La Calla Nero d'avola.

When you smell this red wine, you immediately imagine yourself in idyllic Italy. You daydream about cultural cities, the rugged landscape and the excellent food. A single sip of La Calla Nero d'avola will give you emotions you knew nothing about. This is now called falling in love. A warm bouquet of black fruit, ripe plums, chocolate and fresh Italian herbs makes your nose very happy. The taste is strong, but also very soft. A warm and sultry pallet will tickle your taste buds. You can taste ripe cherries, black currants and fresh blackberries. A touch of toffee gives you a velvety finish. La Calla Nero d'avola is rightfully a topper in Sicily.
