Violeta Gutiérrez de la Vega grew up in a winemaking family. Her parents are Felipe & Pilar Gutiérrez, who for four decades have championed traditional and organic winemaking in Alicante. They make small amounts of wine from their 10 hectare property, mostly from old-vine indigenous grapes. Their daughter Violeta is gradually taking over the property from her parents. In the meantime, she and her partner Alberto Redrado (who holds degrees in oenology and viticulture and is the sommelier from the highly regarded l'Escaleta restaurant) are working this side-project located not far from Violeta’s parents. In fact, Curii wines are fermented and aged in the Guitierrez cellar.
Violeta and Alberto work small vineyard plots, with a total of 1.2 hectares in six
different parcels, and produce fewer than 170 cases per year. The couple aims to restore old parcels in their native region and make wines with minimal intervention. Like at Violeta’s parents property, wines here are bottled without D.O. Alicante designation, even though the grapes are grown within the limits of the appellation. They prefer the freedom this allows them.
Un Noche y Un Día is made up of 15 to 60-year-old organically-farmed Giró (the Alicante clone of Garnacha) grown on calcareous soils at 350 meters elevation in the Valle de Xaló, Alicante. The grapes were harvested by hand, partially de-stemmed and foot-trodden in open vats. The wine is medium-bodied, fresh and fruity up front, with light tannins building on the finish. It’s evocative of its Mediterranean terroir, with citrus flowers, scrub brush, anise, dried spices, and red fruit. Pair it with paella, saffron-scented rice, stewed meat, and tomato-sauce based dishes.
