Ancient Varietals UNEARTHED by Riccardo Cotarella
From Riccardo Cotarella comes Santa Venere, one of the most innovative wine companies in Calabria. A proud organic farm, Santa Venere’s objective remains the same: To make the purely indigenous products of Calabria known and appreciated throughout the world.
Guardavalle is a historic native grape variety, making a white wine with a crisp mouthfeel and a tangy finish. It is ideal with seafood vermicelli, mushroom risotto and fresh cheeses, excellent as a pre-dinner drink and is best served cold at 55.4 degrees.
