"Alfierinero" Rosso IGT Calabria 2022 - Zagarella

We are in Arghillà, on the outskirts of Reggio Calabria. It is here that the Zagarella farm cultivates its vineyards from which the Malvasia Nera grapes used to produce this interesting Alfierinero, a red IGT Calabria wine. A wine appreciated by wine lovers and wine critics who have awarded it several very positive reviews. The grapes are harvested when fully ripe, when the berries have concentrated all their aromas, colour and sugar to the full. Vinification begins with a maceration phase lasting about two weeks in stainless steel tanks at a controlled temperature. Once the alcoholic fermentation and malolactic fermentation have been completed, the wine is passed into large 20-hectolitre oak casks. And, before bottling, only a light clarification is carried out. This reveals a wine characterised by a beautiful, deep ruby red colour, with intense aromas typical of the variety. One recognises, in particular, spicy hints of tobacco and small, well-ripened berries. In the mouth, it is a well-structured, well-balanced wine with firm tannins. Excellent with grilled meat, but also with tasty cheeses and traditional cured meats.

Reggio Calabria, a wonderful land of a thousand contradictions. It is here that the Zagarella Farm founds its roots. A historic family that has dedicated itself to the cultivation of its land since 1800, aiming for high quality production while respecting nature. Today, the farm covers about 70 hectares, 36 of which are cultivated with olive groves, 24 with chestnut woods and 10 with vineyards. Gentle hills exposed to the sun and overlooking the sea of the Strait of Messina. In the winery, they use the most advanced natural technologies, including the innovative Ganimede® system that allows the grapes to be treated without the aid of mechanical processes, maintaining their integrity and lowering vinification temperatures. These attentions result in wines that are easily recognisable for their marked extraction of varietal aromas and for their greater persistence in the glass. Thanks to the enthusiasm of young entrepreneurs, we can thus enjoy a range of products that skilfully combine earth and sun, technology and tradition, history and avant-garde.
