Calabria IGT “Basileus”
Area of origin
San Demetrio Corone (CS)
Hill, 500 m a.s.l., clay-rich soils.
The Basileus originates from Magliocco grapes vinified in purity, it is dark red in the glass. The olfactory notes articulate on a fruity register
with underbrush and leather notes, complex and deep aromas increasing with the contact of the
wine with the air. The entrance in the mouth is wrapping and the
wine fullness is the result of the balance between the tannic matrix and the vine fruity pleasantness.
Long, sapid and very persistent finish.
Wine making process
Vine-harvesting is made
in bins, destemming of the grapes and subsequent fermentation and maceration of the must. After a
first phase of classical maceration, we continue with a “submerged cap” phase, whose duration varies according to the characteristics of the thousandth. Malolactic fermentation and aging in oak barrels. Bottled at least one year after the harvest and subsequent refinement in the bottle.
