Santa Chiara Terre Nobili Fleshy, 100% Greco Bianco, Organic wine, intense sunshine wine, Santa Chiara is full of ripe tropical fruit and savoury herbs. This wine has a deep straw, gold colour with an intense long lasting bouquet. It finishes with scents of zagara flowers along with white peach, ripe orange and grapefruit. On the palate it is dry, fresh, really savoury and full bodied. The aftertaste brings out savoriness, notes of minerals, fruits and flowers. Super charged southern White wine from Lidia Matera. All the wine from Terre Nobili have a similar wow factor intensity, non more so than Santa Chiara. Made from 100% Greco grapes (from Greco di Tufo fame), the wine is rich and oily with exceptional depth of flavour and finish. Muscadet and Loire Sauvignon devotees should avoid Santa Chiara as you would be under the table after the first glass. Serious white wine for red wine drinkers! Rich oily dishes like firm white fish, olives, chili and tomatoes or pork and grilled Mediterranean vegetables with garlic.

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.
