Greco Bianco 2017 Calabria Cantine Lavorata
Calabria, a mountainous peninsula between the Ionian and Tyrrenaen seas, is the southernmost part of the Italian mainland. Here, winemaking has a very long tradition of over 2500 years. It became an area of production for export already during the colonisation by Greeks, who founded colonies that became among the wealthiest in the Mediterranean.
One of the local grapes is called Greco (Greek) and gives us a light, pleasant white wine, with light scents of lemon and citrus fruit, that makes you live a moment on the steep vineyards facing the Ionian sea overlooking the old Greek colony of Riace. The low acidity makes it perfect to drink on its own, and excellent with seafood and fish.
