The agricultural cooperative of Arteteke is at the base of Mount Vulture in Basilicata, where the soil is a mixture of clay and silicium. The 25 year-old vines face east and north east and are all managed organically, giving all of their wines a deep and pure expression of the terrior.
The 100% Aglianico grapes for this outstanding Russine rosè are collected by hand before the whole-stemmed grapes are softly pressed. The skins are then removed before the must is transferred to concrete tanks for spontaneous fermentation. The wine is tasted and checked regularly before the perfect moment is found for the wine to be bottled. The Russine is a crisp, fresh rosè with notes of herbs, minerals and wild berries, which can be enjoyed as an aperitivo or with food.
The story of Arteteke is one we really appreciated. Everyone talks about terroir but Giulio goes a step further to include the community in his terroir and what comprises a region. Arteteke is a local cooperative helping children with cognative and motor skill deficiencies, born simply from providing a job for one child in need, which blossomed into having a community on their farm.
Giulio retraces his memories in his younger years as inspiration for his wines. This Russine rosato made from Basilicata Aglianico is a beautiful expression of their sincere farming and one that you can open up with anyone who loves a rosato wine. "Terroir is more than soil, wind, climate and weather - it's also made by communities" says Giulio Bagnale. And that's how Arteteke was born. Arteteke, is more than a winery - it's a project dedicated to helping place children with cognitive and motor skill problems with employment in the vineyards. As Giulio says, "it's impossible to take care of one's land without taking care of the people and the community who live there".
And let's just say the wine is as beautiful as the story behind it.
