Masseria Perugini

Vivavi’ 2019

From the back label: “The fruit sourced comes from a vineyard planted in 1995 on clay soil with the red autochthonous MAGLIOCCO variety from northern Calabria, in the Cosenza province. The hilly vineyard sits at 300 meters above sea level between the Ionian sea and the Tyrrhenian sea at the foot of Mount Pollino. The vineyards’ practices are carried out respecting the almighty nature, preferring the manual management and avoiding any use of pesticides and herbicides. We use our beloved sheep in order to take care of the excess of grass and the only treatments in the vineyard are based on sulfur and copper in very low quantities. In the cellar, we avoid any unnecessary manipulations and all our wines are fermented only with the indigenous yeast. The grapes are hand harvested in small bins of 20 kg during the 2nd part of October. Fermentation takes place in concrete vats where the wine, after the racking, continues to age for 10 months on the fine lees. Bottled unfined and unfiltered, this artisanal wine can throw some sediments. No added sulfites. Total production: 5.000 bottles per year.
