Odoardi 1480 2015
Bottled Southern Italian sun. From the west coast of Calabria along the sea, this glorious red reminds us why Romans made some of their favorite wine here. Calabria was one of the regions chosen by the Romans for the planting of vines, but the winemaking tradition had since declined, making this region’s output of wine one of the smallest of Italy. The re-discovery of grapes such as Magliocco Canino, Greco Nero, Gaglioppo and Nerello Cappuccio has been an eye-opener for wine drinkers and Odoardi’s re-interpretation of such historic wines is genuine and innovative at once.
