The Calabria Private Bin range is dedicated to the founders of Calabria Family Wines, Francesco and Elizabeth Calabria, it is an expression of the Calabria Family’s Italian heritage, passion and winemaking tradition, who are leading the way in alternative grape varieties.
The Riverina region is home to the Calabria Family. The region enjoys a warm Mediterranean climate with winter dominant rainfall and variations of soils from deep red tones through to brown clay loams.
Anything Calabria’s montepulciano can do, its nero d’avola can do better. A steal. A winner. Back up the truck. Insert ‘buy now’ cliche here. This throaty red offers plenty of fruit and just enough point-of-difference to keep it interesting – all for $15. Earth, coal, bitumen, dried herbs and blackberry. It’s a smokin’ wine for the asking price. Tasted: Feb 2017; Alcohol: 14.5%; Price: $15; Closure: Screwcap; Drink: 2017-2021; Rating: 91 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
