Paolo Calì is a professional pharmacist with a passion for winemaking, which he inherited from his father. He started his own winery and has the ambition to produce real wines, free from conceptual schemes, free not to pursue fashion and free to excite.
The Frappato vines for the Mandragola wine grow in Paolo Calì’s vineyards consisting of salty sandy soil near the south coast of Sicily outside the town of Vittoria. This is a location very influenced by the climate created by the closeness to the sea.
When producing his wines Paolo Calì aims to vinify the grapes enhancing the peculiarities of the soil and the climate, which guarantees important temperature variations; all of which translates into a marked sapidity and minerality, in enveloping perfumes and in a great elegance in his wines.
Longevity 5-10 years.
