Calabria

Although the conditions for growing quality wines exist in Calabria, they have not recently been successfully monetized. Wines from this region enjoyed an excellent reputation from ancient times until the end of the 19th century.

History

Cirò, the region’s best-known wine, was famously favoured by Olympic athletes in ancient times.

Wines and grape varieties

The white wines, such as Greco di Bianco, are mostly sweet, and they enjoy a good reputation in the region. The most important grape variety is the red Gaglioppo, which dominates cultivation.
  • Vineyard area: About 24 000 hectares
