Winemaking

The Odoardi family has owned land in Calabrias Cosenza and Catanzaro provinces for centuries. The two young brothers Gregorio and Giovan Battista decided to start making wine in the early nineties quickly putting denominations like Savuto and Scavigna back on the map. Trained in the ancient albarello or small tree method without trellising, the vines are capable of developing stronger and more flavorful grapes. The wine is hand picked and lovingly fermented, macerated and aged under the supervision of Italys top wine maker, Stefano Chioccioli.
