The vineyards on the toe of Italy are as wild as every other aspect of life there, with few exported, or even exportable, wines being produced. The curious exception is the extraordinary, classical-tasting sweet white Greco di Bianco (Bianco being the name of the main town in the production zone). The obvious exception is Cirò, which produces a deep, intense red. For long Librandi have been Calabria’s leading producers, rescuing near-extinct local vine varieties such as Magliocco.

Some favourite producers: Ceratti, Librandi, Odoardi, San Francesco, Santa Venere.
