This is the most recognized grape in Calabria, though very few producers achieve a serious and dynamic wine from it. The major challenge here is that Gaglioppo can have firm tannins but is lighter in color concentration and can be prone to oxidation. Most often Gaglioppo wines are made just a few shades darker than a Rosé (not unlike the ‘Rosina’) and are more simple, bright and easy drinking.

If there is one family that has seemingly mastered this variety and stands as a beacon of hope for the potential of more serious Gaglioppo varietal wines, it is the Ippolito family.
