Cala Civetta - Vermentino Di Toscana 2020

Cala Civetta Trebbiano Toscana IGT
Trebbiano is one of the most prolific and widely planted varietals in Italy, even in the DOC zones. It has been described by Jancis Robinson as the “crisp mouthwash” of Central Italy, and most of the time, it is about as memorable as a boy-band pop song. In this case, the Cantina at Morellino delivers something lovely, even special, with its Cala Civetta. Low-yields (about 1200g per plant), vine age (oldest planted in the 90’s), and unusual skill combine to offer an affordable, delicious wine that is zippy and floral, with notes of honeydew, sweet grass, and crushed salt.
Located just inland from the Tuscan coastline, the Cantina del Morellino is a true co-op that distributes profits to its 170 participating families. The average land holding is tiny - just 3 hectares - and sustainable farming remains the undying mantra.
