Winemaker's Notes

Grapes: 100% Gaglioppo Rosso

"There's a smoky tea quality to the tannins in this earthy, fragrant red. It takes several minutes for the bright cherry and strawberry aromas to unfold, the sweet flavor checked by gripping tannins. A supple and delightful wine to pair with wild mushroom gnocchi."
-Wine & Spirits

"The 2007 Gaglioppo literally bursts from the glass with super-ripe dark cherries that are beautifully balanced by the wine's freshness. It offers remarkable clarity and transparency for a wine from the south. This beautiful, elegant wine is all about finesse. It is highly recommended. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010. Calabria is another of the regions of Southern Italy that is off the beaten track. Tenuta Statti is a great starting point for readers who want to explore the wines of the area."
-Wine Advocate

"Medium ruby. The vinous nose is redolent of grapey redcurrant and flowers. Rich and ripe on the palate, with candied violet, raspberry and sour red cherry flavors. Not the last work in complexity but I find this absolutely irresistible. It also avoids the dusty and at times rustic tannins that are all too common in gaglioppo wines. A terrific buy."
-International Wine Cellar
