About

If you want to take a no-risk look at a new variety, the Calabria Private Bin range should be your go-to.

Calabria offers some of the best-value examples of emerging varieties in the country. For $15, this is some really interesting and delicious drinking.

Montepulciano is one of the most famous grapes in Italy. The wines it produces are often, ripe, juicy a little spicy and super moreish.

The Calabria version is no different. It is not going to blow your mind with complexity but it definitely over delivers in the value stakes and may open you up to the awesome world of Monte. The 2016 received 90 points from Campbell Mattinson along with the comments that, “You want another glass. And another. Terrific value and drinking.”

What It Tastes Like

“Fair to say that this is $15 well spent. Blow me down. Dark colour, excellent weight of fruit, smoky/minerally aspects, and just enough tannin to lend it a firmness. It’s sweet, warm and ripe but it’s just a bit more than that too. You want another glass. And another. Terrific value and drinking.” - Campbell Mattinson (The Wine Front)
