Calabria

CalabriaThe tip of the boot of the Italian peninsula, Calabria is surrounded by the Ionian Sea to the east and Tyrrhenian Sea to west, and considered one of the most rugged regions in the country. In addition to its difficult terrain, the depressed economy in Calabria contributes to difficulties in terms of viticulture, leading many to label this region as an underachiever in terms of international recognition. Though there are 12 DOC zones, there is very little in regards to noteworthy wine production with the exception of a few labels, like Ciro`. Ciro` is a wine bearing the same name for red, rose`, and white styles of wine. Greeks historically influenced the viticulture tremendously by introducing several varietals in combination with the domestication of a few native varietals, and they laid out the foundation for prosperous wine production. The last century marked the decline of several DOC areas in Calabria, but recent trends focus on expansion and indicate a brighter future for the region.
