  • Organic
Masseria Perugini, owns this small winery that has its roots in a land of living and uncontaminated nature: Calabria. Certified organic since 1998, the Masseria Perugini farm has been one of the most active in the province of Cosenza since the early twentieth century, focusing on traditional viticulture and working with the utmost respect for the land. These wines are fresh, unique and terroir centric. The Vivavi is made from a super indigenous grape, Magliocco. Vivavì Rosso is a genuine wine that speaks of its land and that knows how to express all the primary scents of the grape with notes of dusty pomegranate, spices and a Mediterranean vibe. On the palate it reveals a warm, rich and inviting sensibility. Brambly fruit with enough acidity to balance the tannins.

Le Quattro Volte

For a long time, the Southern Calabria region ranked at the bottom of the winemaking in Italy, but in the last decade it has established itself in the national wine scene for an unprecedented qualitative rebirth. Located in the village of San Marco Argentano (roughly 30 km from the Tyrrhenian seaside), the Masseria Perugini farm that hosts Le Quattro Volte's winery has been one of the most active in the province of Cosenza since the early twentieth century, with a wide and artisanal production of olive oil, figs, citrus fruits, wheat and flour and for the breeding of sheep. 

In the vineyards, Le Quattro Volte skips any synthetic chemicals or pesticides and the harvest is done manually. Sheep are free to roam among the vines till April, providing a natural compost and fertilizer. In the cellar, the vinification starts from spontaneous fermentation with indigenous yeasts, avoiding filtration and clarification and other useless invasive practices (adding color, enzymes, protein, liquid tannins, etc).
