'A Vita

Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore by 'A Vita is an exuberant red wine, which keeps all the freshness and fruit thanks to the only passage in steel vats.

The Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore Riserva from 'A Vita is the winery's most powerful and profound expression of the oldest vineyard. Francesco de Franco is a winemaker who has never had any doubts about which path to follow in order to produce liquids that are clear photographs of grapes and terroir. On the few hectares at his disposal, cultivated in the Cirò area with indigenous grapes such as Gaglioppo, Magliocco and Greco, Francesco has decided to outlaw any chemical product and to consistently continue with spontaneous fermentation and no clarification or filtration. The result is exciting bottles, a synthesis of warmth and finesse.

The Rosso Cirò Classico Riserva is produced from pure Gaglioppo grapes from the oldest vineyard with northern exposure. The manual and careful selection of the best grapes that will contribute to the Riserva, is the prelude to a respectful vinification, with fermentation that takes place spontaneously, and refinement of the liquid in 2000-litre oak casks for a period of one year. Lengthy bottle ageing before the wine is put on the market, to smooth out its roughness.

The Cirò Riserva wine presents itself in the glass with a garnet colour. Nose refined but delicate in its mode of expression, it whispers rather than shrieks. There is cherry, blood orange peel, carob, and floral inlays. True but graceful at the same time, in the mouth the liquid makes no secret of its rich matter, which is however masterfully supported by sculpted tannin and a generous dose of freshness, always ready to enliven the sip. A liquid that knows how to excite, for its ability to render such a precise territorial cross-section.
