Leuko Calabria IGP A Vita organic wine, Greco Bianco and Gaglioppo with light skin contact, resinous, savoury white wine, full yet elegant. Outstanding skin contact white, un po vino rosso in bianco, (as in white wine made from red grapes with 30% Gaglioppo in there) and a little bit orange wine with the Greco bianco spending a few hours on the skins. The result is superb, it opens initially very fresh, citrus, orange aromas and then after a few minutes, the pine, herbs and Mediterranean garriguey character comes out. A stunning white wine, original, full of flavour but very easy too. If you are new to skin contact white wine, this is a great place to start.

Ciro is one of Italy’s most ancient wine producing regions. A Vita – To Life! (Cin Cin to that!) is a small property of 8 hectares with some vines just a stones throw from the coastline and others a little further towards the mountains.
 
Viticulture is all organic and natural, fermentations are spontaneous without additives and very little sulphites. The wines are crafted only from autochthonous varieties, some of the most ancient in Italy such as Greco Bianco and Nero, Magliocco and Gaglioppo. 
 
The wines are a wonderful expression of the Mediterranean, with notes of wild scrub and herbs intertwined with the salt of the sea. The red Ciro is the most elegant example of this often overly rustic wine we have tasted.
