Galio', white wine from Gaglioppo grapes

A white wine derived from red Gaglioppo grapes

If you are curious about the Gaglioppo grape and its potential, this is a wine not to miss. In 1993 oenologist Roberto Linardi experimented for the first time in Calabria the white vinification of indigenous red grapes, creating a wine called ╗Galiò└. His success led him to release this wine following the 1995 harvest. Every year Linardi Casa Vinicola now selects a small amount of quality Gaglioppo grapes from a single alberello vineyard, that undergo a gentle pressing procedure in order to extract the finest primary juice from the grapes. Owing to this pursuit of quality only twenty liters of wine are derived from each quintal of grape.

This pale straw coloured wine distills perfectly the aromas of Gaglioppo grapes. Its bouquet is fresh and intense. Galiò glides marvellously in the glass and on tasting reveals itself to be full bodied, round, and similar in many aspects to Cirò rosso.

Galiò's particular organoleptic characteristics also means that it can enjoyed for over two years from the date of harvest.
