Garnet red in color with strawberry and sour cherry fruit as the primary component, supported by slight vinious and wood notes on the finish. Light-bodied with balancing acidity and super soft tannin character. Great with salami, savory first courses, meat in general and medium aged cheeses.

Caldora is a partnership between visionary Valentino Sciotti, renowned winemaker Mario Ercolino, and one of the largest cooperative wineries in the Abruzzo. Total holdings consist of around 1200 ha, but only the best 200 ha are selected, vinified, and bottled under the Caldora name. The majority of these plantings are located within the Ortona area in a microclimate that runs through a 25 km band between the Adriatic coast and the 3000m high Mount Maiella.
The first bottling, with an updated winery facility coupled to an avant-garde vineyard management system, captured the essence of Caldora: maximum fruit expression in a top quality, reasonably priced wine that everyone can enjoy.
This wine is 100% Sangiovese. Grapes are sourced from Ortona, San Salvo and other small farms.
