2022 Statti Gaglioppo 

100% Gaglioppo 

Gah-lee-ho-poe

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 250 acres 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.

Gaglioppo is a cross descendant from an ancient Greek varietal and Sangiovese. It is a known for producing as a soft, velvet wine with lots of complex berry flavors with light tannins. 

"A fruity, flowery nose full of roses, violets, raspberries, fresh plums and a touch of minerality leads into a lively palate of more raspberry and passion fruit. Tannins and acidity are present but easygoing." 90 Points Wine Enthusiast

2023 Jean Luc Colombo Rose 

67% Syrah, 33% Mourvedre.

Jean-Luc Colombo has been a renowned enologist in the Rhône Valley since the early 1980s. His consultations at prestigious estates across the Rhône quickly earned him a reputation for helping produce incredible expressions of this rugged terroir. But his greatest contribution to the wine world is the exceptional wines he crafts alongside his wife, Anne, and daughter, Laure. The Cornas-based Colombo winery has earned impressive international recognition bringing modern viticultural practices to the region — and for creating beautifully concentrated, balanced, and fresh styles of syrah. Living among their vineyards and wetlands, the family have been committed to sustainable farming, achieving organic certification for their estate vineyards from Ecocert in 2016.

The Vineyards have light, stony limestone soil and are located at the North of the Aix-en-Provence in Southern France. The area has Mediterranean climate providing warm, winters with consistent rain and hot dry summers providing a long, steady growing season. The grapes can develop complex, intense flavors translating into complex, layered wines. 

"Whiffs of cherry blossom and watermelon introduce this dusty-pink blend of 67% Syrah and 33% Mourvèdre. Invigorating and nimble, it offers flavors of sour cherry, raspberry and blood orange accented by a fresh, mineral finish." 90 Points Wine Enthusiast
