The Calabrian peninsula forms the ‘toe’ (although it's really more of a forefoot) of the boot as it separates the Tyrrhenian and Ionian Seas. Wine from Calabria was well-known throughout Europe in antiquity, but more recent times have seen Calabria lag behind the rest of Italy not only in wine production but most other ways besides, with the per capita income of Calabria being less than half the national average. One thing for which Calabria is famous is for their Mediterranean diet, which Ancel Keyes studied here in the area of Nicotera, the home of the Casa Comerci winery. The winery was founded in the late 19th Century by Francesco Comerci and is now run by Domenicantonio Silipo, Francesco’s Grandson, and his sons. The Greco Bianco grape that is indigenous to this area is different from the Greco grape grown in neighboring Campania and has the most potential of all Calabrian grapes. The Comerci family achieved organic certification in 2009 and blends a reverence for the traditional grapes and styles of the region with modern facilities to produce wines that are representative of the region. Made with native yeast fermentations the wine ferments and ages in stainless steel to maintain freshness while lees contact imparts some creamy textures and flavors. Aromas and flavors of yellow flowers, honey, herbs, sage, and yellow citrus fruits. You can probably already guess what to pair this with—Mediterranean food!
