Ansonica Bianco Cataldo Calabetta, Organic Ansonica, natural wine, an expression of the Ionian Sea. Ansonica (or Inzolia), is not very common in Calabria, but it has the characteristic of being well suited to coastal terroirs. The vines are ideally situated on a single hectare of vineyard in Strongoli, only 300 metres from the coast of the Ionian Sea. The wine has an intense yellow almost golden colour, aromas of white flowers with secondary notes of dried fruit and hazelnuts. On the palate, the Ansonica is quite a full-bodied wine with excellent persistence and a salty mineral lick at the end.

Cataldo Calabretta represents the fourth generation of a family of winemakers and is the leader of a group of young winemakers working organically and with low intervention.

After studying Oenology and Viticulture at the Faculty of Agriculture of Milan, he worked for a few years in a number of Italian wineries, before deciding to refurbish the old family cellars with his sisters. For the past ten years, the estate has been run according to the principles of organic farming, an ethical choice, which year after year is paying off: they have renewed the vineyards, continuing to cultivate their vines on hilly land located in the heart of the DOC They only use indigenous yeasts and don’t add anything to the wines other than a minimal amount of sulphites. In the cellar, they renewed an old cement cuve, which proves to be an excellent vessel for the ageing of Cirò wine. Cataldo is a classic grape vine farmer, Albarello or bush vine training, organic manures, hand harvesting and natural ferments in concrete tanks. No finings, no filtration, as natural as they come.
