Family values: the essence of Donalìa

The family C of Farms of the wall: a return to traditions Vito Calia is a passionate man. Powerful and energetic, a summer evening, tells us his story. We are at the gates of Altamura, calcareous soils, altitudes are perfect for growing grapes. Vito retraces the steps of his life, long and articulated, in a whirlwind of memories that start from afternoon naps in the shade of vine leaves his primitive, until recent years when dealing with the housing market before the crisis in the sector annientasse all glory. Today Vito is a different person. He's a man aware that you only live once; It is necessary to pursue and accomplish their dreams. At the time he was a boy, but he worked hard every day with his family. Looks back at those years, remembering the many renunciations, sacrifices, physical efforts with emotion at the memories of his parents and the tenacity of those who have achieved his goal. Donalìa represents happiness and simplicity; the victory of the values of a family that has always believed in dreams and has always strived to reach the objectives with honesty, respect and education: the values of the past. This Rosé, "flushed" by emotion, joy, from physical fatigue, is the emblem of Rosé. A slightly longer than usual maceration on the skins allowed this wine to have a color that turns on very deep purple highlights. A primitive from the Murge, from the land of Frederick II, where the company of Vito, farms of the walls. A few acres, a lot of quality. Making wine is not a job for everyone. He was born between those rows; in the shadows of pampini he, as a boy, laid his weary limbs on my lunch break, when the family was sharing everything; When the family was the example of the values that Vito to broadcast to its wine.
