The

territory

The estate of the Barons Capoano lies on the hillsides above Cirò Marina, a small town in the province of Crotone and in the heart of the area where Cirò D.O.C. wines are produced. The province of Crotone lies facing the Ionian sea, extending over a territory whose geomorphic conformation is unusual, characterised by mountains areas, hills and plains, all within the space of a few kilometres of each other.

The

climate

The area tipically enjoys a temperate climate, which confers bouquet and freshness to our wines; the sloping lands have an excellent supply of minerals, allowing the
production of wines with a notable fruity element, combined with refined elegance. The flavours are those typical of Mediterranean cuisine, further improved by the extra-virgin olive oil from the hilly zones and by the wines of ancient tradition.

The

vineyards

The vineyards that are principally used are : the “Gaglioppo” for the Red Cirò and the “ Greco bianco” for the white Cirò.

 

The Gaglioppo: it grows in an arid and dry soil, these features made the vineyard more resistant with an early maturation. It is a vineyard of red cluster from that we obtain a ruby- red wine with vinous fragrance.

 

The Greco Bianco: the wine obtained of Greco grapes is more or less deep straw yellow in color with the tendency to gold and with amber reflects; it has the particular fragrance of dried fruit, the taste is harmonic and soft, to drink young and possibly within 2 years.
