Gassas Wine

History

To trace a definitive line between poetry and technique is impossible. The tangible reality of oenological and viticultural competence mix indissolubly with the beauty and emotions which  our estate, this place, gives us with its colors and aromas, inspiring our estate’s vision of the world.

 The company logo is represented by an ancient clay head of Etruscan origin representing the Greek god Dionysus and dating from the fourth century B.C., discovered near the city of Volterra and now the property of Eric Albada Jelgersma.

God of vegetation and of wine, particularly linked to the vital lymph, the first-born of the cosmos, and to the liberation of the senses, it is the perfect representation of what we wish to transmit with our wines.

The name of Caiarossa was coined as a homage to the soil, which is characterized by the presence of jasper, rock and pebbles intensely red in color. A creative name inspired by Gaia, mother of all the gods of Mount Olympus, goddess of fertility and of Nature, of the very Earth itself.

Our story began in 1998, taking as its guide the principles of organic agriculture for the cultivation of the vineyards and that of geo-dynamics and the oriental discipline of Feng Shui for the construction of the cellars.

Vineyards 

Our vineyards map: at the current moment Cairossa owns 175 acres (70 hectares) of land, half of which occupied by oak, cork oak, and holm oak woods. The first 40 acres (16 hectares) of vineyards were planted between 1998 and 2000 and, following an ample series of soil sampling and analysis, it became evident that the soil composition was quite varied: calcareous at lower altitudes, rich in sandstone and sand, iron-rich at higher altitudes. An additional 37 acres (15 hectares) were planted between 2008 and 2013 on the southern slopes of the Nocolino hill, a site a few kilometers away from the center of Riparbella with clayey soils.

The search for grapes which could express themselves at maximum levels on these soils led to a selection of seven red grape varieties: Sangiovese, Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot, Alicante, and Syrah along with three white grape varieties: Viognier, Chardonnay, and Petit Manseng.
