The Tenuta Celimarro- Winery located in Castrovillari in Calabria, region known for its archaeological evidence
The Tenuta Celimarro winery and estate is located in Castrovillari in Calabria. This region is known for its archaeological evidence including fossil remains that date back to prehistoric times and links to the area to the Roman Empire. The area is also still home to a number of old buildings that date back to the 18th century, many of which were owned by the Varcasia family to which the Tenuta Celimarro belongs. The rural building complex owned by the Varcasia family is considered to be one of the most beautiful complexes in the area.
Production of their First Autochthonous White Wine
The first vines were planted in 2006 and today these vines cover over 20 hectares along with 5 hectares of centuries old olive groves. The 2013 Tenuta Celimarro produced its first bottle of Magliocco red wine completely avoiding any external intervention in the wine making process in order to ensure maximum recognition for the territory. Following this, in 2014 the estate’s first autochthonous white wine was produced – the Greco Bianco.
The next development was that of the Rose in 2016, which was vinified from Aglianico grape.
Many of the wines have since then won multiple international and local awards.
The most famous and popular wines are the Magliocco Hoerco, which is the winery’s signature wine, the Greek White Horeca, the Beyond Time Rosato and the Montonico white. Today the winery is run by the young winemaker Valerio Cipolla whose passion and enthusiasm is evident in the excellent wines produced.
