Statti Gaglioppo Calabria 2011

photo 3

Since 1700, the Baron Statti family has been living and farming on the same 500 hectares of land in the Calabria region of southern Italy. Today, under the leadership of Alberto and Antonio Statti, the estate is one of the top wine producers in Calabria, focusing on a blend of their tradition, native varietals and technological innovation. With an emphasis on their bond with the land, they believe “that a great wine, as well as the nice one, born, first of all, into the vineyard”.

Dark red-violet in colour with intriguing aromas of fennel, cherry and candied violets. Aged in stainless steel to preserve fruit purity, bright cherry and raspberry flavours joined Indian spices and smooth tannins. Licorice, smoky herbs and hints of dense black cherry lingered compellingly between each sip. Engaging and expressive, this is a fantastic companion at the table.
