Serracavallo - Wine tasting
Dal campo al bicchiere -
From vineyard to the wine glass
Azienda Agricola Serracavallo is a boutique winery based within DOP Terre di Cosenza, overlooking the Crati valley. Demetrio Stancati, the owner, revived the vineyards in 1995 with a careful selection of the indigenous vines that have been on the farm for a long time. The estate is spread across 55 hectares, 30 of which are vineyards. The vineyards are almost 600m above sea level with a wide day-night temperature range. The soil is mostly granite sand with southwest exposure. The state-of-the-art wine cellar with the most modern technology and barrel room for aging wines ensures top-quality wine every time.
Nestled between hills and valleys, the Azienda Agricola Serracavallo is about indigenous grapes like Magliocco dolce, Pecorello, and international varieties of vines such as Cabernet Sauvignon and Chardonnay. Since 2012, the winery became part of the DOP Terre di Cosenza, consistent with all the investments made and the experimentation with the native vines. The winery produces around 150,000 bottles of fine wines with their grapes. The philosophy behind their winemaking is blending native Calabrian grapes with international varieties.
