Run by husband and wife team Francesco and Laura de Franco, ‘A Vita is located on the arch of Italy’s boot tip, nestled between the Ionian Sea and the Sila mountains; their production is small, a total of 2,000 cases a year. The vineyards are certified organic, and no fertilizer is used. Instead they plant cover crops, and are careful to not work the soil so as to favor natural biodiversity. In the cellar, there is zero technological input: the wines are fermented spontaneously without temperature control, decanted naturally, and are never rushed. This is their white (or, more accurately, orange) wine, a 70/30 blend of Greco Bianco and Gaglioppo vinified off the skins; fresh and persistent, this is a wine that captures the essential spirit of Calabria.
