"A 60-40 blend of Gaglioppo and Cabernet Sauvignon, this savory wine opens with aromas of pink peppercorn, tarragon and juniper. There’s ample weight and structure to the well-knit palate, displaying ripe red- and black-berry flavors speckled with pepper and herbs. The finish is rounded, balanced and lingering." *Editors' Choice*
Vinous Reverie Notes
Statti is convinced a great wine starts in the vineyard. Since the 18th century, the Statti family has lived on the same vine-growing land and has a deep, historic understanding of the vineyards in the heart of the "Enotria Tellus", the ancient name for Calabria, meaning land of wine. Over the last 15 years, Statti has been devoted to its 100 hectares of vineyards running along the slope of a hillside that protects it from the maritime winds. It is only through a long-established dedication to the vineyards and to their care throughout the cultivation process that Statti can create the conditions in which great Calabrian wines can be made. Tasting Notes: Color - Ruby red. Bouquet - Intense and complex bouquet on the nose with aromas of dried fruit and flowers, cloves, spices, tobacco and mocha. Flavor - Elegant, full-flavored sip, with a good body, smooth polished tannins and a long finish. Pairings - Red meats, roasts, game and mature cheeses.
