Calabria

(Italy)

Calabria, which boasts an enological tradition that brings back to the Greek civilization, has experienced long moments of fogging, from which it has not yet fully recovered, despite the commitment and the ability of a few producers who are operating at high levels.
Today the vine is cultivated mainly in some areas near the sea, with a total production, in 2009, of about 392,000 hl, especially of red wines.
The most cultivated grape is the gaglioppo, which represents more than ¼ of the red berry production, while the white greek is the most important among the white grapes.
Both are used in the production of Cirò Bianco, Rosato and Rosso, the most famous wines of the region. In the inland areas it is worth mentioning the production of DOC Pollino, based on black gaglioppo and greek, while towards the extreme tip of the region, from the Greek white is obtained the Greco di Bianco DOC, a passito wine as delicious as it is rare.

Country
Italy
Morphology of the land
Plain: 9%   Hill: 49%   Mountain: 42%
Climate and soil
The climate is Mediterranean along the coasts, with mild and rainy winters and hot and dry summers; ventilation is moderate and temperature changes are not significant. Proceeding towards the inside the characters of continentality are accentuated progressively, especially on the higher elevations, with very rigid winters and warm summers. The Sila area is affected by the continental climate, and in the cold season snowfall is not uncommon. Precipitation is abundant in the higher areas, especially on the Tyrrhenian side, while they are considerably reduced on the plains and on the coasts.
History
The territory of Calabria, in ancient times was inhabited by the Bruzi, was later occupied by the Greeks who called it Betia. Later the Romans in turn turned it into Bruttium. The Calabrian people, however, was located in the area of ​​Puglia, in the Salento Peninsula that was called Calabria. In the centuries that followed there was a strange shift in name. Already in the times of Charlemagne the ancient area of ​​the Bruzio was called Calabria.
Typical products
In the Crimisa area, one of the eight DOC wines of Calabria is produced, the Cirò rosso and rosato, from the black vine, Gaglioppo, and the Cirò bianco dal Greco Bianco. One of the best producers of Cirò Classico is Librandi. From the tip of the boot comes a passito wine, Greco di Bianco. In the area of ​​Catanzaro, we grow a series of local vines such as Nocera, Calabrese, Pecorino and Magliocco which give fruity and aromatic wines.
Typical dishes
Among the horticultural and agricultural products, the precious production of onions (the very famous ones of Tropea), the aubergines, the tomatoes, the peppers, the beans, the pumpkins, the mushrooms and the citrus fruits is very important. Olives and extra virgin olive oil, among which we must mention the PDO Bruzio, Lametia and Alto Crotonese. Among the first we find the maccaruni, artisanal pasta seasoned with meat and tomato sauce or with ricotta cheese and grated, the slippeddi, spaghettoni hand-rolled served with pork sauce and ricotta salted and smoked or with aubergines, vermicelli c ' à muddica, pasta seasoned with grated bread seasoned in the earthenware pot with anchovies and oil. Among the desserts there are the mostaccioli, made with flour mixed with honey and white wine in the shape of fish, human figures, little horses, and the pitta 'nchiusa, sweet two-layer pizza, stuffed with a filling of sultanas, walnuts and wine cooked.
