Calabria At a Glance

Region Name Calabria

Calabria is a non-industrial rural mountainous region. Its economy is dependent on cereals, citrus, and particularly olives, with a per-capita income less than half the national average. Called Enotria by the Greeks in pre-Roma times for its illustrious vinous past, today viticulture and winemaking are far from the vital industries they once were and account for a tiny proportion of land use.

  • Score: 91 Vintage 2015 Wine Enthusiast Aromas of crushed Mediterranean herbs and a dash of Chinese five spice are in full force on the nose. The medium-bodied palate is equally savory and spicy, with tart blueberry and cherry tones filling it out. There's a slight earthy funk to the midpalate, akin to a brisk jaunt on a farm, with polished tannins and fresh acidity lending support to it all. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
  • Score: 89 Vintage 2015 Vinous Media The 2015 Batasarro Riserva, a varietal Gaglioppo, wafts up with notes of smoked meat, crushed stone, sage and plum skin. It’s silky in texture yet lifted in feel, cooling herbal and mineral tones complementing the ripe black fruits. This turns quite tense and wiry through the finale, tapering off to purple-tinged florals and hints of balsamic spice. The Batasarro will perform best at the dinner table accompanied by rich and hearty fare. Shelf Talker Full Page Review
