Statti’s History and Philosophy
The Statti company, managed today by Alberto and Antonio Statti, is located in Lamezia Terme (from Catanzaro) extending over an area called the “Two Seas”, partially returning to the flat area of S. Eufemia , which went down in history for the battle of Maida, 4 July 1806 , during which the Napoleonic troops who tried to invade Calabria to complete the occupation of the Kingdom of Naples, were definitively defeated by the British fleet and army.
The Statti company covers 500 hectares which have been owned by the family for over three centuries, which is why we can say that it is the Calabria’s oldest farm .Ancient olive trees, orchards, various arable land, cattle breeding, 100 hectares dedicated to viticulture, from which the DOC Lamezia wines are obtained , are the peculiarities, the experience and the heritage of the company. Passion, tradition, family, history, territory and innovation: all enclosed in a wine. A sword nobility that of the Statti, of Albanian origin, who arrived in Calabria around the middle of the century. XV following Prince George Castriota Scandenbeg.
The vineyards, located on land of Holocene age, are protected from winds from the sea thanks to the hill, which mitigates the climate, in excellent exposure . The plants are espalier and the breeding technique is the classic one of the spurred cordon, and the grapes initially grown Gaglioppo, Greco Bianco and Nero , were then enriched by Mantonico and by the international Chardonnay and Merlot. A cost job that since the 70s has seen this company grow exponentially, which today boasts national and international awards,thanks to the work in the vineyard and in the cellar that have brought to the wines continuous improvements and growth in quality and value, thanks also to the excellent oenological work of the winemaker Lorenzo Landi, in collaboration with Nicola Colombo.
