Notes on the Terre di Balbia Balbium Calabria Rosso 750ML 2006

Technical Notes This wine is produced from the illustrious zone surrounding Altomonte known as Balbia. So named for the indigenous wine "balbium" a homage to the Roman emperor Decius Caelius Calvinus Balbinus. Born into nobility around 170 A.D., Balbinus ascended from consul and then governor of Calabria to co-emperor (along with Pupienus) of the Roman Empire on April 22, 238. Though Balbinus's reign came to a violent end after a mere 99 days, the territory memorializing him --the Terre di Balbia-- has a lasting viticultural legacy. Produced from Magliocco grapes, it is then aged in oak casks prior to bottling. The Terra di Balbia “terrior” along with modern wine making techniques provide this wonderful full bodied wine that we can enjoy as the Emperor did 1800 years ago.
