of the earth
and the scent
Our passion for viticulture has pushed us to recover the historic vines of our territory, saving them from extinction to preserve their inestimable value.
Today we cultivate them organically, with sustainable techniques, respecting the vineyards and our land.
Ours is not a story of numbers, hectares and turnover, but the story of women and men who continue to work the vine with passion, from winter pruning to harvest.
With the same philosophy in each bottle we pour, along with the wines, their history, their identity, their deep roots.
For this reason, with every sip, they speak of a unique land, tenacious and harsh, gentle and strong.
La pizzuta del principe
From the native gaglioppo and greco nero vines, this intense and complex wine ages 24 months in French oak barrels.
It is the most authentic expression of the personality of the autochthonous gaglioppo grape and, at the same time, of the terroir.
Deep dark purple. The taste is in perfect harmony, revealing softness, enveloping and balance. Persistent and convincing.
Dark garnet edge. The nose recalls wet earth, plum, cardamom and notes mentholated, perhaps tobacco.
Intense ruby red wine with shiny garnet reflections. On the palate a pleasant softness, round, of good power, notes of red fruits, warm and vigorous.
Hints of ancient gold. In the mouth it shows off a balanced structure, decidedly saline and fresh, which floods us with a pleasant persistence.
Straw-colored white with slight greenish reflections. On the nose, hints of exotic fruit.
Salmon-pink colored wine, typical expression of the grape.
Besides the vineyards, 25 hectares of the estate are dedicated to olive trees
Gaglioppo, Magliocco, Greco black & white and Pecorello, are the vineyards that have grown on this territory for centuries, with a strong agricultural vocation.
In the cellar you will find a shop where you can buy the tasted wines and gastronomic products of the local tradition.
From spring to autumn we will be happy to welcome you to taste our wines in the cellar and taste the traditional gastronomic products of Calabria.
