Last night we sent email confirmation for our first order from Calabria. We will start with one producer and one wine. The wine is made from Magliocco Dolce, grown at 400 metres in middle Savuto valley in the Motta Santa Lucia (CZ) commune. Plant density is eight thousand plants per hectare which is almost unheard of in Calabria.
And in their own words: ‘Quality for us means folks, relationships, dutifulness, confidence’.
As an importer of Italian wine into Australia, there is not much more I could ask for and I can’t wait for these wines to arrive in Australia sometime in March and it will retail for around $20 a bottle.
