Retrospection in Magna Grecia - "Big Greece"
The Greek grape varieties and the art of wine making were introduced and spread widely in the mediterranean basin and specifically in the South Regions of Italy and Sicily, also known as “Magna Grecia, during the great Greek colonization (700-500 b.c.). Thirty years ago, Domaine Hatzimichalis repatriated some of these varieties that were transported there from the ancient Greeks, like Verdicchio, Trebbiano, Malvasia, Grecanico, Grechetto, Aglianico, Schioppettino etc., and tested their potential in Atalanti Valley. After a lot of years of systematic study of their characteristics and their perfect adaptation on the vineyards of the Estate, some of them have resulted in marvelous varietal wines with an authentic personality and a unique taste.
