Calabrian wines were widely praised by Pliny the Elder and Roman nobles reserved them for their most important feasts. Calabria then was part of a larger, Southern Italian region known as Oenotria meaning “the land of wine." Over the millennia, however, Calabrian winemaking declined such that its wine production is currently one of the smallest of Italy.
From: Calabria, Italy
Varietal: Magliocco Dolce (Arvino), Greco Nero
Tasting Notes: Intense and persistent ruby red with notes of black cherries, currants, and ripe berries, notes of wild violets, and hints of spices and balsamic complete the aromatic picture of great complexity. Soft and dry body, with a full and fruity finish. Supported by good acidity and the austere quality of very fine tannins that evolve over time towards a balance.
Pairing: Ideal accompaniment for roasts and grills, game, cured meats, and seasoned and spicy cheeses.
Antiche Vigne has its roots in the heart of hilly Calabria. It can be reached by a pleasant journey along the Savuto Valley, which crosses the province of Cosenza. Green, lush land, gently sloping, exposed to the winds full of salt of both Tyrrhenian and Ionian seas. Until you reach Rogliano, a town in which Antiche Vigne has built its walls and barrels. Where the air is mixed with the rows of autochthonous varieties of Greco Nero and Bianco, Magliocco (Arvino), Mantonico, Pecorello and Malvasia. The winery is perfectly located in this context. It combines tradition, passion and respect for the territory with the innovative EUREKA wine-making process, which is exceptionally natural and selective, giving us DOC wines with a strong typical mark and high quality.
