Discovering the Hidden Gem of the Mediterranean: Magliocco Wine

In the heart of the Upper West Side, Manhattan, lies a treasure trove for wine enthusiasts: Wine Affairs, a distinguished wine distributor known for its exquisite collection and expertise in fine wines. Among their remarkable selections is a wine that encapsulates the essence of the Mediterranean - the Magliocco wine.

Magliocco wine, derived from one of the oldest grape varieties in the Mediterranean, is a testament to years of dedicated work and research. This wine is a product of a unique vineyard that straddles the Calabrian seas, offering a landscape that perfectly melds the maritime world with the warm southern earth. This synthesis creates a perfect harmony of colors, aromas, and flavors.

Originating from Calabria and carrying the Indicazione Geografica Protetta (IGP) designation, Magliocco wine is made from 100% Magliocco Canino grapes. The vineyard, situated at an altitude of 500 meters above sea level with a southern exposure, features heavy soils low in organic substances and highly alkaline. The grapes are cultivated using the spurred cordon training system, ensuring the highest quality of fruit.

The vinification process of Magliocco is traditional yet meticulous. The grapes, harvested at peak maturity, undergo intensive and prolonged maceration. Techniques like saignée are employed to enhance color and polyphenol extraction. The wine is then aged in 50 Hl French oak barrels for 18 to 24 months, undergoing malolactic fermentation, which contributes to its remarkable organoleptic characteristics.

Magliocco wine is a sensory delight. It boasts a deep garnet color and an intense, broad aroma with hints of plums, cherries, and blackberries, harmoniously blended with the French oak. On the palate, it reveals the fullness of the fruit, exhibiting excellent density, balance, and a velvety texture. With a substantial body and superior persistence, this wine is a true embodiment of elegance and complexity.

At Wine Affairs, we are not only passionate about offering such exquisite wines but also about expanding our horizons. We invite fellow wine distributors to partner with us in exploring and sharing these unique wine experiences. Together, we can unveil the hidden gems of the wine world to a broader audience.

Moreover, we are always on the lookout for wine enthusiasts and skilled salespeople to join our team. If you have a passion for wine and a knack for sales, Wine Affairs offers a fulfilling opportunity to immerse yourself in the world of fine wines and share your passion with others.

In conclusion, Magliocco wine is more than just a beverage; it's a journey through history, culture, and taste. At Wine Affairs, we are committed to bringing this extraordinary experience to wine lovers everywhere.
