'A Vita, Calabria il Rosso (2018)



A new wine for 'A Vita (although it was made once before, in the 2012 vintage), the 'il Rosso' is 92% Gaglioppo (from the hillside vineyards of Sant'Anastasia and Muzzunetto, at 100m asl) and 8% Magliocco (from the seaside vineyard Fego, at 0m).  Both sites have typical clay-limestone marls. Harvest is in late September at yield of 4000-6000kg/ha (around 28-42 hl/ha). The grapes are co-fermented spontaneously, with a brief maceration of 36 hours.  The addition of a little Magliocco has historic precedent in the area, as it softens Gaglioppo's notorious tannins and stabilizes its feeble color a bit.

Aging is in stainless steel for 24 months, after which it is not clarified but undergoes a wide filtration.
