More info

Aranghìa is the Graecanic name of the river that flows into the Ionian Sea close to the Capo Spartivento promontory. The wine Aranghìa was born right here, in the midst of land and sea, in one of the most suggestive and uncontaminated parts of the Aspromonte, in Greek Calabria.It inhales the heat of the earth and the breeze of the sea surrounding the area where the IGT Palizzi wine is produced, alongside a number of some of Calabria's best-known red wines.

Production region: Capitano Ziccone locality - Palizzi (province of Reggio Calabria).Altitude: 200 metres above sea level to the west of Capo Spartivento.Vineyard: terraced, facing south. The spurred-cordon cultivation system is used, with adensity of 5,000 vines per hectare in sandy, clayey soil. The yield is about 50 quintals per hectare.

Harvest: the fruit is hand-picked in mid-September.

Wine making: the grapes, having first been gently de-stemmed and pressed, are placed in stainlesssteel tanks. Here they are left to macerate for seven days at a controlled temperature, so that all theflavouring and colouring agents are extracted to the full. Later, after further gentle pressing, the alcoholic fermentation continues at a controlled temperature in stainless steel tanks. Ageing: Afterwards, the wine is decanted. It completes its fermentation and ages in stainless ste tanks. Before selling, it is aged further in bottles for at least two months. The wine: the colour is deep red. Its bouquet is refined, warm, archaic and spicy with a hint of red berries.
