A tradition that continues from the times of the ancient Greeks
This land, once called Enotria, which in Greek means “land of wine”, is still today a place used to produce various DOC, Docg, and IGT wines, mainly red, with a rich flavour and archaic references. The Reggio area, harsh and strong, provides the palate with a blend obtained from ancient vines and international grapes, but not only: the Greco di Bianco is entirely Calabrian, among the oldest wines in Italy, certainly the one of which we have the oldest historical testimony about. Palizzi, on the other hand, is an intense and fragrant IGT red wine that expresses the strong and decisive character of the land from which it is born. Another strong product is the Bivongi: a DOC wine with vines also of ancient origin that goes well with the strong and decisive flavours of typical regional dishes. The Pellaro, another elegant IGT red, comes from the sunny vineyards south of Reggio Calabria and recognises all the history of the local tradition. The last memorable wine from the province is undoubtedly the Mantonico, which is of Hellenic derivation, linked to that immense cultural vein of divinations that for thousands of years has characterised Southern Italy as a whole. Whether accompanied by salami or cheese, or tasted as a meditation, Calabrian wines maintain a privileged position among its typical products.
Bivongi is a DOC (Controlled Denomination of Origin) wine and is produced in a hilly area near the Calabrian Ionian coast between Reggio Calabria and Catanzaro. It is a special wine born from a specific blend of native grapes, produced by a few expert hands.
IThe Greco di Bianco wine was recognised as a DOC wine (Denomination of Controlled Origin) only in 1980. Although it is produced in limited quantities due to the limited production area, chosen and maintained due to the characteristics of the soil and the microclimate, this passito wine is certainly [...]
Mantonico represents a small patrimony in the territory of the Calabrian Ionian coast that only in recent years has been rediscovered by producers and consumers. Its grapes are grown mainly in the province of Reggio Calabria in a hilly area, with soil rich in white clay.
Calabria brings eternal aromas and flavours: the southern flavour is concentrated in Palizzi, capable of expressing all the strong and decisive characters of the land in which the grapes come from. The delicious wine from the Grecanic area has made the town of Palizzi famous with the name “Palizzi, [...]
Pellaro is a rather sought after IGT red wine that takes its name from a neighbourhood south of Reggio Calabria that features extensive sunny vineyards. It is obtained from three different varieties of native grapes: Calabrian, Alicante, and Castiglione, featuring a sustained alcohol content.
