Statti Gaglioppo

Statti Gaglioppo

SKU 71689896160


As with so many "ancient" grape varieties, especially ones that are situated in Southern Italy, there is some notion that Gaglioppo is originally Greek. Recent genetic studies do suggest a strong relationship to a rare Sicilian variety called Frappato. Gaglioppo is a hardy variety, and is very well adapted to the exceedingly hot and dry conditions that prevail in Calabria. Gaglioppo berry bunches are tightly packed, with a medium skin thickness. The vine's production is fairly prolific, vigorous with lots of foliage, as well as predictable from vintage to vintage. Gaglioppo ripens fairly late usually in the first week in October, but Calabria's hot and dry conditions provide plenty enough heat and light to fully ripen the fruit.
