A favorite of the jet set at Sardinia's chic resorts, La Cala is the ultimate definition of the Vermentino grape. It is romantically named for a small, secluded cove fringed by violet-colored thistles on the edge of the Sella & Mosca estate. Few wines rival La Cala for its exceptional affinity with seafood, thanks to the very subtle presence of a natural marine salinity in the wine, credited to the Mediterranean location of Sella & Mosca's Vermentino vineyards.
The Sella & Mosca property in Sardinia is one of Italy's most impressive and progressive wine estates. Impeccably maintained, this 1,600-acre estate is credited with placing Sardinian wines firmly on the international wine-lover's map. Moreover, it includes the second largest contiguous vineyard in Italy. Acclaimed for world-class wines made from Vermentino and Cannonau grapes, Sella & Mosca is also behind the single-vineyard Marchese di Villamarina, among Italy's greatest and most sought-after Cabernets.
Elegant and supple, this single-vineyard wine couples fullness of flavor with an underlying acidity.
Vermentino wines are a versatile match for a wide array of appetizers and entrees, especially shellfish and seafood dishes.
