Gaglioppo

 

In the Scala family since 1949, the domaine is now run by Luigi Scala, who leads the production of Cirò wines following family traditions. From the growing of the grapes to the refinement and aging of the wines, he favors quality over quantity and aims to produce a distinguished Calabrian wine. The winery is truly a family business as Francisco Scala oversees the business side of the winery. The vineyard is comprised of 18 hectares for an overall production of 100,000 bottles. Most of the grapes are native varieties such as Gaglioppo, Magliocco, Nerello, Mantonico and Greco. They are cultivated in espalier on the hinterland plains and hills, on argillaceous and sandy soil. Farming/vinification practices: Scala exclusively uses organic products, such as lupins to fertilize the vineyards; it provides the soil with nitrogen and helps eliminate weeds. Luigi's grandfather used indigenous yeasts, but the current winemaker chooses to inoculate. They are now certified organic, starting with the 2016 vintage.
