Sunday Offer: Gaglioppo by Statti 2018
In Calabria, everyone knows Statti. The impressive estate of 500 hectares of grape vineyards, olive groves, citrus groves, crops and cattle, has been the home of the Statti family since the 1700s. When you visit Calabria, go there.
The old name of Calabria, "Enotria Tellus," means the "Land of Wine," and when you drink Gaglioppo it transports you to a bucolic Mediterranean landscape, infused with all the sweet and savory smells of land and sea. Related to Sangiovese, the exact lineage of the ancient Gaglioppo grape is fuzzy, but it clearly speaks and tastes Italian. Fermented and aged in steel, there's no secret recipe with this 100% Gaglioppo. In the glass it captures the true spirit of Calabria with colorful herbs, big wild berries, and the softest hint of meat and smoke. Unlike most Italian reds, the tannins are moderate and gentle, which makes the fruit and its juicy acidity shine. So, put a chill on it and let some simple soppressata do the rest!
