The cultivation of the vines is the grammar and geometry of the land, while harvesting the fruit is a form of art. Every year represents a unique work of art and a new search for unique and ever higher qualitative margins, able to put together tradition, study, aesthetics and innovation. Today among the primary objectives of the young Nicotera Severisio family are the giving of value to the native vines of the zone, like the Calabrese, Magliocco and Black Greco, and their placement among international vineyards.
The positive combination of the land; the favourable solar exposition and the special micro-climate, provides excellent conditions for the gathering of aromatic substances into the grapes. The Mediterranean air currents and the warm sun of the South give a special quality to the Nicotera Severisio grapes.
To obtain the excellence from the grapes, the harvest is rigorously carried out by hand in different periods depending on the ripening of the grape bunches.
The Nicotera Servisio wines are produced using ancient methods together with modern technology while respecting the characteristics of the native grapes.
The passion for wine has accompanied the family forever, and by referring to expert and qualified wine-makers, they have brought their company to be considered a leader in Italy and an example of the most interesting realities in the area.
The production process starts out with the careful attention given to the vines: the experts operate on the plants manually both in the pruning and widening phases. The limited final output per hectare reflects the company’s desire to obtain a high qualitative level of the final product.
The harvest is the most emotional moment of wine-making. It brings out the fascination for tradition and represents the central period of the productive cycle.
The best grapes are picked by hand, so as not to damage the bunches. After a first check, they are transported in small crates to the family wine-making centre.
Today the Nicotera Severisio family personally and carefully follow each different phase of the company: from the vinification, to the refinement, up to the bottling and the conservation of every single product which carries its brand name. Everything is trusted to qualified personnel.
The passion for wine has always lived side by side with the Nicotera Severisio family. The profitable collaboration with the wine expert guarantees the company a production full of flavours and aromas of note.
Emerged in a harmonic alternation of lines of vines and century-old olive trees, the Vineyard belonging to the family has been completely renovated. Here innovation and technology come together to give life to a modern product with an ancient heart.
The welcoming wine-tasting room can offer eno-tourists interesting and in-depth knowledge about wine-making in every one of its productive processes.
The aim of the young Nicotera Severisios is to communicate to its visitors that harmony and simplicity which is the distinctive trait of the family
