2015/16 Greco Nero I.G.T

$45.00

This Greco Nero I.G.T from Cantine Lavorata is dark and intense red with purple hints, alluding to the rich aromatic bouquet of roasted plum and dark red cherry. A peppering of cinnamon and clover notes on the nose delight the drinker.

In the mouth you’ll find a dry, full bodied wine, with balanced and soft taste, silky tannins and thick texture.

A beautiful expression of Greco Nero I.G.T of Calabria, a hidden gem amongst the Italian wine world.

Description

The Finer Details

What does our Somm say?

This wine is reasonably versatile when it comes to food pairing; yes – the traditional dishes of tomato based pastas, spicy calabrese cuisine, and red meat or game will always complement this wine the best.

However, for something different, try this also with Dried Cod Stew (Baccala), Rogan Josh (Indian Lamb Curry), or spicy beef mince tacos.

Alternatively, a good quality cured cheese such as Gouda or Manchego make for more simple bites and let this wine take main stage.

As a full bodied wine with a reasonably ‘full’ bouquet, I would recommend decanting this wine an hour or so before serving.

 

Optimal Serving Temp: 16 Degrees Celsius

 

Drinking Age: Drink Now to 5 years

 

The Winery

Cantine Lavorata is a family run winery founded in 1958. Situated in Roccella Jonica , within the province of Reggio Calabria in Southern Italy. Their vineyard’s unique vicinity to both mountains and coastline creates the perfect microclimate for growing the native grapes of the zone such as Magliocco, Calabrese and Greco Nero (which originated historically from Greece).

 

Cantine Lavorata are proud producers of D.O.C Calabrian wines, and for generations have dedicated their lives to the gentle and respectful growing of autochthonous wines on their estates. Their history of wine productions dates back to the 1800’s, when Luigi Lavorata began to practice a passion for wine making, however it wasn’t until the formal commercialisation of their wines that ‘Cantine Lavorata’ became known both within their region and internationally as producers of some of the finest wines in Calabria.
