Terre Nobili

Lidia Matera is quite a character, she greets you with a big smile, a warm embrace and always very keen to pour her wine for you to taste. Her small wine farm is based in the Valle del Crati, a small bowl shaped valley in the northern part of Calabria where summer temperatures are will peak at close to 40 degrees and the sun shines constantly. Here Lidia grows local varieties Magliocco Dolce and Canino and also Nerello Mascalese, a grape more associated with Mount Etna in Sicily. Her vineyard is organic and she achieves a level of ripeness which produces exceptionally rich and opulent wines which in the best years also have a creaminess and mouth feel which makes very impressive. The sweet flavours of south come through, dark fruits, prune, blackberry, and sweet spices, vanilla, notes of liquorice and chocolate can be found in all the wines. These are full bodied wines for those who like big bold flavours and deep colours. The Cariglio and Ipazia are fresher as they don't see any oak, the Alarico is bigger and bolder with more toastiness. Lidia also makes a very full bodied white from Greco Bianco which with some Moroccan style food with spices and fruits is superb.
