Only the best vermentino grapes are earmarked to be made into Cala Reale. Cultivated on ancient sedimentary soils, they are harvested and brought to the cellars to be pressed, then cold-macerated for an extended period and aged on fine lees.
A deep straw yellow with brilliant green highlights, it has an intense bouquet that combines an alluring tropical aroma with more classic nuances of Mediterranean shrubs and medicinal herbs and berries.
In the mouth, it is warm, with hints of ripe fruit that blend in with an exhuberant savoury saltiness that penetrates a refined and precious body. The long aftertaste features mineral notes and is decidely fresh and flavourful.
