About Fuso Terre Siciliane Cala Bianco

Fuso Terre Siciliane Cala Bianco shows pithy stone fruits, cantaloupe, dried citrus rinds, and sandalwood; the dried flowers on the nose extend into a long salty finish. It’s on the edge between an orange wine and a white wine, with 50 hours on the skins.

Cala Bianco is Dario Serrentino from Mortellito’s spin on the white grapes northwest of Sicilia. He works with the specific clone of Catarratto called Catarratto Extra Lucido – Extra Shiny Catarratto – which gives wines more texture, depth, and color than the common Catarratto usually found throughout Sicilia.

Dario is known for making highly drinkable and sea-breeze salty island wines. He is working here in the raised 400-meter plains outside the town of Partinico, 30 km west of Palermo. Seeking to tweak the acidity, even more, he picks early in August instead of September.

About The FUSO Project

FUSO is a long-term project for importer PortoVino. The project aims to bring authentic, local wines from each of the 20 regions of Italy. The project focuses on wines from natural growers rather than from tank farms. Farmers and producer friends are committed to organic viticulture, low-intervention, and terroir-driven wines. As a result, they got some cool stuff. The first is the Fuso Barbera from Walter Massa in the Colli Tortonesi in Piemonte.
FUSO requirements:
  • Delicious and terroir-driven
  • Made by farmers (not tank farms)
  • Certified organic or practicing organic wineries in conversion
  • Native grapes
  • Native yeasts
  • Low sulfur (45 mg/l or less of added SO2)
  • Unfiltered or slightly filtered
  • Dry farmed
