Heraklion - Vino Rosso IGT Palizzi affinato in Barrique

Heraklion Red In Barique
Heraklion is the name of Capo Spartivento, the cape on the Jonian sea, formerly known as Heraclitus Promontory. Heraklion wine was born in this place between land and sea, one of the most evocative and unspoiled areas of the Aspromonte, in Greek Calabria. Heraklion benefits from the heat of the earth and the sea breeze that characterise the production area of IGT Palizzi, one of the most renowned red wines of viticulture in Calabria.
