Altura Rosso Saverio Isola del Giglio 2018

  • $75.00

From the importer: 

The Altura project is an homage to the island of Giglio and how it tranformed Francesco Carfagna's life. For those unfamiliar with Giglio it's a small island 10 miles off the coast of Tuscany and only accessible by water ferry. The island is small, mostly mountaneous and 90% covered in vegetation. While it densly populated in the summer, fewer than 600 people live there year round. Francesco Carfagna is one of them.

This wine is a blend of 13 co-planted varietals including some white grapes. Isolated on the south side of the island, the only way to access the vines is to take a small dirt road that can only be navigated with four wheel drive then walk down to the vineyard. During harvest, cases are walked back up to the truck.
