Val di Neto

A blend of Gaglioppo (70%) and Cabernet Franc (30%), this rosé has a delicate, velvety and fruity taste. The idea was conceived during a business trip many years ago, when we realised how distant and valuably different our land was from everything else.

Grapes Gaglioppo 70 % Read more

The quintessential Cirò grape, this is the most important red grape variety in the area, both in terms of tradition and production. It is the main component of Cirò red and rosé DOC, as well as of other Calabrian wines. It can be developed in several ways: from traditional rosés, fresh and fruity wines with their own character, to medium-bodied reds with good levels of acidity and great complexity. In case of a longer maceration process, the wine naturally gains more structure and better aging prospects. It usually has hints of red berries, Marasca cherries, dried flowers and licorice.
