Scavigna DOC

The DOC includes vineyards in Nocerna, Terinese and Falerna comunes in Cantanzaro province, Calabria, overlapping thereby, on the lower reaches of the Savuto river where it flows into the Thyrrenian Sea, the neighboring DOC to the north, Savuto.

At elevations ranging between 250 to 800 meters, the vineyards of Scavigna DOC are, by their very nature, remarkably beautiful in their setting. The soil, consisting primarily of gravel deposits mixed with clay, coupled with the often cool climate, creates ideal conditions to produce elegant, full-bodied reds and fresh white wines.

As is frequently the case in Calabria, reds dominate with Gaglioppo grapes leading the way.
