Owned by the Lavorata family by 4 generation, Luigi Lavorata showed interest in viticulture and winemaking backn in the 1800's but it wasn't until the 60's that the winery took form. Nowadays the winery is run by the whole family and based in the beautiful Roccella Jonica on the Ionian sea side of the Calabrian region. Organic handling (not certified).

The cuvee name Anfisya derived from Amphissa, the historic name of Roccella Jonica, which was once the site of the ancient Greek settlement of Amphissa.Blend of Insolia, malvasia and local variety Guardavalle, named after the town of Guardavalle, 30 mins north-west of Roccella Jonica.
Each variety is fermented separately in stainless steel and then blended together. Short bottle ageing before release. Organic handling (not certified).

Lifted and aromatic with a lovely mineral lilt to the nose and palate. The Malvasia give it a honeyed, nectarine hit and flroal lift while the Insolia pulls the wine together and gives it a firm hoold through the mid-palate. Its fleshy and easy but put together really nicely. Good stuff! PWS
