White berried grapes in Valtellina are quite rare. “Calis” is actually produced with the Pignola red berried grape from Valtellina, vinified in white. Pignola is an indigenous grape which can be found only in the Villa di Tirano and Bianzone municipalities (Sondrio, N Lombardy), and it is very well suited to white winemaking.

The flesh of the Pignola berries is perfectly white and a slight pressing allows to obtain a colorless must. 15% of Sauvignon blanc grapes is added just before bottling. “Calis” is persistent and intense to the nose, with fresh and floral aromas, and it is soft and pleasantly dry on the palate.
