Palizzi – Calabria Rosso

In 1847 Edward Lear had a long journey in Calabria. He wrote in a diary where he described his impressions about the Palizzi area and drew beautiful Calabrian landscapes. During his stay in Palizzi he drank and enjoyed the red wine which still today is the pride and rarity of Calabria.
It is a wine delicately fruity and spicy, good structure and tannic. It is an excellent accompaniment to typical local dishes like bread “guastedde”, ragu’ with macaroni and pecorino or ricotta salata, spit roast, wild boar sausage and aged pecorino.
