 In 2006,  Siblings Franco, Gianni and Giusy Calcagno inherited vineyards from their late grandfather, and while they knew they had to keep with tradition, they also wanted to experiment a little with the incredible bounty they had work with. Their property is located near Passopisciaro, and they only grow the traditional local varieties of Nerello Mascalese, Nerello Cappuccio, and Caricante. This funky fella is kinda weird, salty, crisp white flowers, peach snapple, tangelo, and noticeable tannin, this wine is a fun lil' head scratcher!
