The vineyards in the area known as Dareri, by the town of Palizzi, are situated at an altitude of about 600 metres a.s.l.. They are exposed to significant variations in the weather. The excellent pedoclimatic conditions favour the production of high quality grapes, which are full of character.
The new plants in the areas known as Santucci and Ungì, by the town of Melito, are equally well-exposed and ventilated.
The grown varieties are Calabrese Nero, Nocera, Gaglioppo and Magliocco Dolce, while others are grown in lesser quantities.
The area is not penetrated by noises coming from the “civilized” world and the surrounding countryside is beautiful and wild. The rugged hills are divided into terraces overlooking the sea.
