Cretapaglia - Forse Sono Fiori 2019
Fresh aromatics on the nose and oxidative complexity on the palette. Lovely textural amber from this breezy corner of Calabria by the Tyrrhenian sea. Here the idea of a hot, arid Calabria, with alcoholic and demanding wines is very far away. The wines that Antonello makes are light, delicate, direct, with short macerations, no intervention in the vineyard or cellar, and as much identity and soul as the land they are grown on.
Harvested by hand in the first 10 days of october. The wine undergoes spontaneous Fermentation, with 48hrs maceration on skins followed by 10 months elevage in old oak. 600 bottles made.
