Winemaker Notes

Golden yellow, with brilliant highlights. Well-integrated fruit and spice notes, with herbaceous tones and hints of almonds, white flowers and toast. Soft and rounded, but with tangy fruit and a finish of roasted almonds.

Excellent with vitello tonnato, international seafood-based dishes, especially when roasted.

Critical Acclaim

WS 89
Wine Spectator
This creamy white is aromatic, with exotic ground spice, fresh tarragon and lemon curd flavors. Sleek acidity creates a mouthwatering frame for the flavors of poached peach and blood orange granite.

It hasn’t taken long for Alberto and Antonio Statti to show that their initial success was no shot in the dark. An that their place in the top band of Calabrian producers is fully justified. The 500-hectare property is one of the largest in the region. Currently They have 55 hectares under vine but now that the new cellar is operational this is due to rise to 100 hectares. The Stattis are giving prominence to magliocco, gaglioppo, mantonico and greco bianco, a concentration on indigineous varieties that shows far-sighted thinking. Consultancy comes form two Sicilian oenologists, Nicola Bambina and Vincenzo Centonze, and to judge by the wines, their skills are equally effective either side of the Straits of Messina.

The idea is to combine tradition and innovation into the production of high quality wines. Alberto and Antonio Statti are the fourth generation of a family of farmers who have always felt a great link to the land and territory. Some vines were grafted from areas of the property and replanted in other areas that were considered more suitable to vine-growing. The plains around Lamezia Terme have one of the longest lasting traditions when it come to winemaking in Calabria: it can easily be compared to the Ciro’ area. "Our goal is to improve this great territory that has huge potential", says Alberto Statti.

Named “Oenotria” by the ancient Greeks for its abundance of grapevines, Italy has always had a culture virtually inextricable from wine. Wine grapes grow in every region throughout Italy—a long and narrow boot-shaped peninsula extending into the Mediterranean.

Italian Wine Regions

Naturally, most Italian wine regions enjoy a Mediterranean climate and a notable coastline, if not coastline on all borders, as is the case with the islands of Sicily and Sardinia. The Alps in the northern regions of Valle d'Aosta, Lombardy and Alto Adige create favorable conditions for cool-climate grape varieties. The Apennine Mountains, extending from Liguria in the north to Calabria in the south, affect climate, grape variety and harvest periods throughout. Considering the variable terrain and conditions, it is still safe to say that most high quality viticulture in Italy takes place on picturesque hillsides.

Italian Grape Varieties

Italy boasts more indigenous grape varieties than any other country—between 500 and 800, depending on whom you ask—and most Italian wine production relies upon these native grapes. In some regions, international varieties have worked their way in, but are declining in popularity, especially as younger growers take interest in reviving local varieties. Most important are Sangiovese, reaching its greatest potential in Tuscany, as well as Nebbiolo, the prized grape of Piedmont, producing single varietal, age-worthy Piedmontese wines. Other important varieties include Corvina, Montepulciano, Barbera, Nero d’Avola and of course the white wines, Trebbiano, Verdicchio and Garganega. The list goes on.

This late-ripening variety from Campania flaunts an invigorating mineral character—more so than its other regional white grape compatriots, Fiano and Falanghina. Bursting with fresh citrus, stone fruit, herb and spice, Greco di Tufo wines are dark lemon or gold in color but as that might suggest, aren’t particularly heavy on the palate. The wines are medium- to full-bodied and have a relatively high acidity. The name Tufo comes from the soft, volcanic rock found all over in the subsoil of the region where Greco thrives.
