Grape: Chardonnay, Pinot Blanc, Greco Bianco, Riesling, Malvasia, Treviano.
Region: Italy> Calabria> Scavigna
Notes: Stainless steel tank, no oak.
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. Today, in spite of the efforts by wineries like Odoardi, Calabria remains the most underdeveloped and poor region of the peninsula. The two young Odoardi brothers decided to start making wine in the early nineties, quickly putting on the map some of Italy’s lesser known grape varieties and denominations: Savuto DOC and Scavigna DOC. Combining six different varietals to create harmonious, well-balanced flavors, this dry white is refreshingly fruity with a touch of earthiness.
Food Pairing: seafood, shellfish, salads, grilled chichen.
