2014 Cantine Viola "Rossoviola" Magliocco Calabria

SKU #1439987 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The Cantine Viola 2014 Magliocco Rossoviola gives you a chance to taste the Magliocco grape with genuine and unmasked authenticity. This is a mid-weight wine that blends perfumes of blue or black fruit with dark aromas of tar and smoke. Forest floor, bramble and wild berry also appear. The simplicity and honesty of this fresh Calabrian red is its best attribute. Drink through 2022. (ML) Inner quote mark (12/2018)

K&L Notes

This wine comes from the town of Saracena in the Province of Cosenza. The town takes its name from the Saracens, or Muslim conquerors. The Cantine Viola Rossoviola is made from the Magliocco Dolce grape, also known as Marsigliana Nera and not to be confused with Magliocco Canino. Magliocco Dolce is a late-ripening (harvest starts in early October) and tannic variety. It’s grown on mostly red clay over limestone substrate at 1500 feet above sea level on the southern boundary of the Pollino National Park. At that elevation the grape keeps its freshness while still showing its power. The Barolo of the south! This is a wine with power and depth, and it does show a fair amount of tannic structure. It’s ideal with braised meats or hearty casseroles.
