Ciro’ e Ciro’ Marina are the historical countries of Calabria,positioned between 0 and 300 meters above sea level, in the province of Crotone.This land is famous all around the world because this is the homeland of ”Cirò”
The Russomanno Vineyards
Tenuta Russomanno, an estate on our property, is situated in the Cirò Superiore district. It comprises five hectares with mostly organically cultivated vineyards as well as olive groves and a citrus grove.
The terrain is flat with sandy and medium-textured soil. The altitude of the land is approximately 200 m.a.s.l.
It is here that we cultivate the indigenous grape varieties, such as Gaglioppo and Greco Bianco, with very interesting results. We use a training system of spurred cordon in a temperate microclimate that enjoys winds both from the sea and the surrounding hills.
We produce our Cirò Rosso Classico Salvogaro and Rosemanno, both 100% Gaglioppo, and the white wine Cirò Doc Frandina (100% Greco Bianco) with grapes from these vineyards.
The Mortilla Vineyards
The Mortilla vineyards are situated in the Cirò Marina district at 300 m.a.s.l. with a southern exposure.
The planted vines are 90% Gaglioppo and 10% Magliocco. We apply organic farming in the vineyards.
The characteristics of the wines produced here, both complex and elegant, are very much tied to the land and a true expression of the terroir.
The warm climate is typically Mediterranean with marine breezes that mitigate the winter cold and freshen up the warm summer days.
It is with these grapes that we produced Cirò Rosso Classico Superiore.
