Historically known as an autochthonous Sicilian vine, in reality the history of nerello has its roots deep in the Calabrian territory: cousin of gaglioppo, it was considered so valuable that it was exported from the Cosenza hills to the north of Italy and France, to go to enrich the already robust and sustained flavor of Sangiovese and Cabernet. This exporting practice, alongside a progressive affirmation of other more fortunate crops and with a greater yield in the short term, resulted in the progressive abandonment of nerello in favor of other crops: so in the 19th century the traces of Calabrian nerello are lost in the meshes of history, together with those of the glories of a winemaking tradition linked to such a precious product.

In an era in which Calabria is known throughout the world for other productions, our intent was to regain possession of the historical tradition and to support the natural inclination of the territory. For this reason we have decided to dedicate ourselves to a sadly forgotten product, but with an unmistakable flavor. Our journey crosses tradition in the taste of nerello, a noble and rich wine, the result of a passionate and entirely manual process, to preserve a high quality production consistent with our philosophy and expertly guided by the precious advice of the Enologist Dr. Emiliano Falsini and the agronomist Dr. Stefano Dini.
